I'm credibly thankful for my family and their support.
"I can guarantee you this, I'm not going anywhere", Gillum said. On issues like climate change, which is increasingly important in Florida, Mr. DeSantis has said he didn't want to be known as an "alarmist", while Mr. Gillum promised to be a governor who "believes in science".
DeSantis earned the backing of President Donald Trump during the Florida Primaries earlier this year.
Meanwhile, DeSantis, who resigned from his congressional seat after winning the Republican primary, presented himself as an extension of Trump's conservatism. And nobody brings it like the big guy.
More than 550,000 people voted early in Miami-Dade, either by mail or in person, far more than the previous midterm election in 2014.
"I'll be damned if I'm going to let anybody get in my way".
"I can guarantee you this: I'm not going anywhere", Gillum said.
Florida is the most densely populated of the battleground states that swing between the parties in presidential elections, but Republicans have controlled the governor's mansion for two decades.
Cross Counter storms to Melbourne Cup win
A year later pre-race favourite Admire Ratki died after collapsing from heart failure in the stalls minutes after the race. It's the first time an England-trained horse has won the Cup, with Charlie Appleby winning after several attempts.
Many Democrats believed that the 39-year-old Gillum, the father of three young children, injected a degree of enthusiasm lacking for their party's candidates over the past several elections. Kamala Harris, all of whom campaigned in the state at Gillum's side. He has ties to a radical far-left and anti-Semitic group, Dream Defenders, his mayoral office is under investigation by the FBI for corruption, and he has been criticized by DeSantis as anti-Israel and too liberal for the Sunshine State. "All the way along this path", Gillum said.
The trips and the ticket are part of an ethics investigation into Gillum, and Corey is at the heart of a federal probe into Tallahassee city government.
He said that he asked the Grace of God Church in New Port Richey to take down the sign, but because it is not within 100 feet (30 meters) of the actual polling place he can't force its removal. The president also used his Twitter account to attack Gillum, calling him "a thief" who is "mayor of poorly run Tallahassee".
DeSantis has denied accusations of racism first when he warned voters not to "monkey this up" and vote for Gillum.
"You need to be able to work with the president", DeSantis said last month, saying he would be "better positioned to advance Florida's priorities" due to his "productive relationship with the administration". The president endorsed DeSantis in June. There's a slight lead among Democrats, right?
These races are interesting for different reasons.
Though it turns out, these events didn't hurt DeSantis enough to sway things in Gillum's favor.
