Florida gubernatorial candidates court Jewish and pro-Israel voters

Florida gubernatorial candidates court Jewish and pro-Israel voters

But the contribution in early 2016 does not appear in the records for Gillum's political committee, raising new questions less than two weeks before Florida's governor's race between Gillum and Republican Ron DeSantis is decided on November 6.

Democratic Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum on Monday hit back hard at President Donald Trump after the president accused him of being a "thief" on Twitter. He interrupted McDermott to call his unfinished question "McCarthyist" and suggest incorrectly that McDermott was wrong about racist statements David Horowitz made at a conference DeSantis participated in.

DeSantis, meanwhile, maintained he was unaware of both the nature of the conferences where he spoke and of his donor's racist remarks.

"As we saw with the Comey letter, Democrats are more likely to be deflated over something like this and stay home", said the consultant, who asked to remain anonymous in order to speak candidly. Instead of turning down the donation, DeSantis used it to fund negative ads, according to the mayor.

But an email from Corey to Brice Barnes, a campaign finance consultant who was helping Gillum at the time, indicates that Gillum was aware of Miller's help.

"All this stuff that they say, I've got to let them know, anti-police? No".

"These disgusting, abhorrent robocalls represent a continuation of the ugliest, most divisive campaign in Florida's history", said Geoff Burgan, a spokesman for Gillum's campaign.

Gillum was referring to a tweet by Florida businessman Steven Alembik, who also is known for calling Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg a "senile fool" who "can't die soon enough". I don't know how you quantify that but it's straightforward. Outside the debate hall, a woman in a group of demonstrators backing DeSantis held a sign that read, "Democrats Fake News Fake Bombs". "He said last debate he would not cooperate with ICE at all". "Awesome news about Hamilton".

Unlike an absentee ballot, you don't need an excuse to vote early, and anyone who is registered to vote in MA can vote early. In the U.S. , each state sets its own voting laws, from registration deadlines to voter identification requirements.

In one of the most powerful moments of the night, Gillum confronted DeSantis, a former USA representative, over the bigoted tenor his campaign had taken on in the weeks since the Trump-backed Republican told voters not to "monkey this up" by voting for his black opponent.

The sparring, to some extent, obscured stark differences on the issues.

DeSantis reiterated he would have vetoed a bill signed by Republican Gov. Rick Scott three weeks after February's massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that raised the age limit to buy a rifle from 18 to 21 and imposed a three-day waiting period on rifle purchases. "He wants you to believe that he is not under investigation". IL shipping magnate Uihlein wrote a $500,000 check, along with $250,000 to another state committee that has in turn transferred nearly all its funding to DeSantis.

The candidates also diverged on health care.

The Tallahassee mayor took responsibility for "not having asked more questions" about the exchange, but then tried to downplay the issue in the context of the race: "I'm running for governor and the state of Florida, we got a lot of issues", he said.

"Some people were paying more for premiums than for rent, so people couldn't afford it".

Korge said there's more than 400 people scheduled to attend a Thursday fundraiser at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables Thursday, and that excitement hasn't waned.
