Takeaways From Andrew Gillum’s Masterful Debate Dismantling Of Ron DeSantis

President Trump calls Tallahassee one of USA's

Booker is now a Senator and Gillum is still the mayor while running for Governor.

The heat is rising in the Florida governor's race.

DeSantis also did a good job of sticking Gillum's with his support from the Far-Left and their plans to impeach President Trump.

The race is tight.

In the Real Clear Politics average of polls, Gillum hold a 4.5 percentage point lead over DeSantis.

The poll shows a wider lead for Gillum than some other recent telephone polling, almost all of which was conducted before Hurricane Michael struck the state on October 10. DeSantis has based his campaign on attacking the Tallahassee mayor, and he continued that approach during CNN's nationally televised debate. "We need the incentives to be for the costs to go down". "I want to look at this and do what makes sense for Florida", and touted his recent endorsement by the Everglades Trust.

"I'm the only candidate (for governor) who can credibly say he's not under investigation by the FBI", he added, referring to an investigation of Tallahassee city government.

Gillum has been drawing enthusiastic crowds to his campaign rallies since the primary, when he defeated a crowd of well-funded opponents. "You shouldn't have to kiss the ring of the president of the United States for the president to see to the goodwill of the third largest state in all of America", Gillum said. And we have an opportunity on November 6 as a collective, as a state, to say, "We deserve better".

"I'm confused by the question", he said to Tapper with a puzzled face.

"I'm asking you all for the only thing in life that my mother ever told me to ask for, and that's a chance", he concluded. "So it's not a big deal".

And it includes China, and it includes Russian Federation , and it includes anybody else that wants to play that game. Bell doubted that a withdrawal from the treaty would cause a serious rupture of the current strategic balance.

Andrew Gillum and Ron DeSantis touched on accusations of racism and corruption before turning to the man who made DeSantis the GOP nominee.

The candidates' exchange over health care was less bruising, but pushed DeSantis into a political corner inhabited by many Republicans this midterm season, as he effectively pitted himself against the party's own efforts to dismantle Obamacare.

"Donald Trump is weak", Gillum said. "And that's why I'm here". Bernie Sanders, the Vermont progressive leader, endorsed the mayor in the crowded Democratic primary.

DeSantis also addressed accusations that he has sought to inject race into the campaign.

DeSantis vowed during the debate on October 21 to work closely with the Trump administration, while noting that Gillum has called for Trump's impeachment.

"I'm voting for Andrew Gillum", Ms. Fazio said, praising his support for gun control and expanding Medicaid coverage for hundreds of thousands of low-income residents. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders was an early supporter of Gillum, who has received significant financial backing from liberal megadonors Tom Steyer and George Soros.

Gillum denied taking any gifts.

"His record as mayor is one presiding over a city that's out of control in terms of crime", DeSantis said, citing a report that found Tallahassee had a historically high murder rate previous year.

DeSantis, like Gillum, was a surprise primary victor.

Though those efforts, both in Congress and the courts, succeeded in changing the law and ending coverage regulations for people who have pre-existing conditions, DeSantis said, he would push through statewide legislation to counteract them.
