  • MSNBC Accidentally Airs Results Of Florida Governor's Race In Test 'Misfire.' Guess Who's 'Winning'?

Andrew Gillum was poised to become the first black governor in Florida's history. It was a crushing blow to Florida Democrats, who hoped a "blue wave" of anti-Trump sentiment would enable them to win a governor's race for the first time since 1994. He enjoyed support from President Trump throughout his campaign.

Rep. Jeanette Nunez, a Miami Republican who is running for lieutenant governor with DeSantis, slammed Gillum for Tallahassee's crime rate, which is above the state average based on population. "This is a race where if there's one race if the if the Republicans lose could be laid at the feet of Donald Trump", Hume told the panel.

Trump again played a major role in the general election, appearing at rallies with DeSantis in Lee County and Pensacola in the final week of the campaign.

Republicans were eyeing a potential pickup in CT, traditionally a Democratic state, where the contest was too close to call on Wednesday morning. Bill Nelson in his Senate race against Gov. Rick Scott.

In his victory speech, DeSantis also vowed to combat red algae and protect and restore the Everglades.

DeSantis, 40, an Iraq War veteran, decorated military lawyer and former Florida congressman, defeated the Tallahassee mayor by a razor thin margin Tuesday night, with the two candidates neck and neck in the heated contest for the majority of the evening.

DeSantis called Gillum a "committed leftist ideologue". "They're now using full bullhorns".


DeSantis, who attended Yale University and Harvard Law School, resigned his seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in September to focus exclusively on his gubernatorial bid. When DeSantis was asked about the Horowitz conferences during an October debate, his angry reaction created one of the campaign's viral moments. "I know a lot of people are waiting until tomorrow". I am not going to bow down to the altar of political correctness.

"Now, I'm not calling Mr. DeSantis a racist", Gillum said in response.

Gillum replied: "My grandmother used to say a hit dog will holler".

Yet, an FBI investigation into alleged corruption at Tallahassee City Hall hurt his chances of winning the election.

But Gillum, who is just 39, vowed to remain involved in politics.

DeSantis also criticized Gillum for signing a pledge for the civil rights group Dream Defenders. Endorsed by socialist Bernie Sanders, Gillum wants to raise the Florida corporate tax rate and minimum wage, and he has made exorbitant promises to raise teacher salaries and expand Medicaid in Florida.
