Could Florida's Next Governor Make It the 10th Legal Cannabis State?

Could Florida's Next Governor Make It the 10th Legal Cannabis State?

The DeSantis campaign clarified in an email that his comments were directed at Gillum's policies, not the candidate himself.

The panel on "The Five" said Florida gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis should apologize for using the word "monkey" as part of an idiom to describe how he feels his rival would run the state. "To characterize it as anything else is absurd", Lawson said.

The gloves are already off. Mr. Trump called Gillum a "failed socialist" on Twitter Wednesday.

The state is going in a good direction, but voters would "monkey this up" if they elected Andrew D. Gillum, a Democrat who stands to be the state's first African American governor, DeSantis said in a morning Fox News appearance.

DeSantis has run as a strong supporter of Trump since launching his campaign in January, after the president tweeted in December 2017 that he'd make a "GREAT" governor of Florida. "And then there were a few more people who believed it was", Gillum said in his victory speech Tuesday night.

DeSantis built his successful primary campaign by appearing on Fox News dozens of times, eventually drawing the crucial support of President Donald Trump.

Levine, thought to have been the second most-popular candidate of the three for several weeks, finished a distant third with about 20 percent of the vote and lost his home county of Miami-Dade to Gillum by almost 10,000 votes.

As with all contracts that require a monthly payment, you obviously want to a do a bit of financial planning before you commit. Microsoft has fewer than 100 stores in the U.S. across 35 states, meaning some states don't have a store at all.

He and DeSantis will now move on to compete in November to replace Republican Rick Scott, who is term-limited, in what will be one of the most closely watched gubernatorial races in the country.

"On the first day of the general election, Ron DeSantis showed Floridians who he really is", David Turner, deputy communications director for the Democratic Governors Association, said in a statement.

Gillum came from behind in a crowded and diverse Democratic field.

Their battle for the November election will happen in a state that Barack Obama won twice and Trump won in 2016.

It's possible based on those subpoenas that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is trying to make the case that Corey, who served briefly as Gillum's campaign treasurer during his 2014 mayoral run, engaged in a pay-for-play scheme with local officials in exchange for their vote to expand the CRA's jurisdiction. For months, the Tallahassee mayor was trailing Florida political dynasty candidate, former Rep. Gwen Graham - whose father was a beloved senator and also governor of the state - as well as a number of wealthy and self-funding challengers.

Democratic nominee for Florida governor Andrew Gillum isn't anxious about the possible influence President Donald Trump will have on his race against Republican Ron DeSantis in the general election this November. The 39-year-old had the backing of longtime national Democratic donors Tom Steyer and George Soros, and a long list of liberal Hollywood celebrities.

Gillum was a 23-year-old Florida A&M student when he became the youngest person elected to the Tallahassee City Commission in 2003. "Andrew Gillum has built an unprecedented movement for change in Florida and it's hard to imagine a candidate better equipped to defeat a Trump sycophant like Ron DeSantis this November". Nixon agreed, tweeting that: "Andrew Gillum just won his primary for governor of Florida!".
