MSNBC Broadcasts Florida Governor Race Results One Day Early

  • Jewish voters hear last-minute warning about Gillum

Gillum delivered a concession speech shortly before 11 p.m.

DeSantis, justifiably, thumped his chest in victory.

While it's no surprise that in MSNBC's hypothetical world the Democrat wins every time, polls for Florida's gubernatorial race have been trending in Gillum's direction.

In the end, Trump's candidate won.

Republican Gov. Rick Scott is projected to defeat incumbent Democratic Sen.

Accusations of race-baiting dogged Kemp, 55, and DeSantis, 40, who denied the allegations.

He was joined at two of the rallies by Lara Trump, a daughter-in-law of President Donald Trump.

He railed against his primary opponent Adam Putnam for not faulting the state's massive sugar industry for the proliferation of toxic algae blooms plaguing the Treasure Coast.

But ultimately, the issues of the day didn't define Florida's race for Governor.

Republicans put forth a candidate hand-picked by President Donald Trump.

Voters in Florida have a rare clear choice between a rock-solid conservative and a democratic socialist for governor.


Accordingly, Trump and race occupied the mind of almost every voter.

"My most significant and valued supporter is standing right next to me, despite what the media might say", DeSantis said of his wife Casey.

Identity politics factored into this campaign in a way few expected before the August primary.

DeSantis also invariably contended that Florida would be less safe under Gillum, because of Gillum's positions on immigration and policing, as well as by repeating Tallahassee has the highest crime rate in the state. "I'm concerned about my community - that's why I vote". "To me, it's all about results", DeSantis added. The presence of a third-party candidate on the ballot makes that possibility more likely.

Gillum's campaign also battled headaches over an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into possible corruption in Tallahassee during his administration. That contest was still unresolved by 11am EST (0500 GMT), though Kemp held almost a 7-percentage point lead with 90 per cent of the ballots tallied.

In almost every way, DeSantis did not win by running a campaign by the book.

For his part, Gillum, the Tallahassee mayor, presented a platform that was in stark contrast to the President's on national policies that governors have little control over.

With more than 99 percent reporting, DeSantis had a more than 77,000-vote lead out of 7.9 million ballots reported.

But if the primary election's principles were any indication, money meant little, to begin with.

It was Trump's support, including a July endorsement rally in Tampa, that helped propel DeSantis past a better-funded and more widely known opponent, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, in the August 28 Republican primary.
