Florida gubernatorial candidates set for final debate

Democratic Florida gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum speaks at a campaign rally in Miami

That's when the discourse between DeSantis and Gillum turned nasty. It's no surprise that Gillum leads in polls by an average of about six points. The commission is investigating whether Gillum accepted gifts from lobbyists after a Tallahassee businessman and persistent critic of Gillum filed a complaint.

Regarding her support for DeSantis, Tamir praised the Republican candidate's pro-Israel support. Both sides appeared eager for character to emerge as the defining issue in what remains of the sharply partisan campaign.

Gillum did not hold back. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, who sat in the debate hall audience. During the debate, DeSantis deflected all allegations.

DeSantis, 40, noted that he practiced baseball with Republicans who were shot in Virginia a year ago. I can tell you, we're not doing it. And Gillum added that DeSantis had been endorsed by President Donald Trump.

'Say you're convicted of child molestation. The trip has become the focus of an ethics investigation and is tied to the FBI investigation into local corruption in Tallahassee. The warrant stated that agents were focusing on City Commissioner Scott Maddox, a former head of the Florida Democratic Party, and his former chief of staff. Maddox has denied any wrongdoing.

Earlier this week Kise released texts and other information contradicting Gillum's assertion that he paid all of his expenses on trips to Costa Rica and New York City, which are the subject of the ethics complaints. Mr. Corey had won the stay at a charity auction, and invited his friends to accompany him.Mr. Gillum's campaign produced receipts on September 4 showing that the mayor and his wife, R. Jai Gillum, paid for their airfare to Costa Rica and several restaurant meals there.

Gillum admitted he had taken the ticket, but said he received it from his brother and thought his brother swapped them for concert tickets. "I arrived at that theater and received my ticket from my brother". While he hasn't commented on the new documents, during Wednesday's debate he referred to a Jay-Z song when he said, "Florida's got 99 problems, and "Hamilton" isn't one of them".

Gillum's story of how he paid for his ticket and his villa vacay is now being picked apart by the opposition, thrown in his face as proof that he's unfit for the Governor's mansion, and re-spun by the Gillum camp heading into the final two weeks of a testy and tumultuous campaign. Documents released this week show that he was told in a text that "Miller" had gotten the ticket.

It seems like an uphill battle right now for Spurs to make the knockout round as results outside their control will likely need to fall their way.

"Awesome news about Hamilton", Gillum replied, according to the records.

"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. "He has spoken at racist conferences".

"I take responsibility for not asking more questions".

"How the hell am I supposed to know every statement somebody's made?" he said.

Gillum looked on, mouth open, with a half-smile on his face. "I'm simply saying racists believe he's a racist". "He said I'm a grown man, I pay for my stuff", DeSantis said. The candidates briefly touched on policy matters, reiterating their opposing positions on gun control, the minimum wage and immigration. Gillum opposes for-profit charter schools. 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. And last night, Gillum called him out for it.

Since the opening days of the general election contest between Gillum and DeSantis, race has been a subtext, with DeSantis receiving criticism for his choice of words during an interview with Fox News.

Gillum went on to say that he is in favor of law enforcement "repairing the breach" and making sure that there is a good community relationship.
