Florida election results: Governor and Senate races close after big turnout

Misfire’ MSNBC Airs Fake Graphic Showing Andrew Gillum Winning Florida Vote			Screenshots MSNBC Arr BNN		6 Nov 2018

The hotly contested race in Georgia, where Democrat Stacey Abrams was seeking to become the first black woman to be elected governor of a USA state, remained too close to call early on Wednesday.

"On Election Day, it's the voice of the people that roars", DeSantis told supporters at his election party and called it "the one day the elites don't call the shots ... and they don't set the agenda". Gillum delivered a concession speech shortly before 11 p.m.

Those performances endeared DeSantis with Republican primary voters in Florida who watch Fox regularly, but they did little to improve the congressman's name recognition among independent voters and did nothing to hone his positions on Florida-specific issues. "We stood up we stood strong we spoke out because we recognize that we had power". DeSantis loudly objected to suggestions he was in cahoots with far-right figures or that his ties, unwitting he said, to white supremacists should be held against him.

The race for governor is the state's most visible contest this year. He has also criticized Gov. Rick Scott (R) for opposing Medicaid expansion. Though Gillum had a slight edge in the polls leading up to Election Day, and support from high-profile Democrats like former President Barack Obama, Florida has not elected a Democratic governor since 1994.

DeSantis, whose endorsement from President Trump boosted his nomination for the Republican party, pledged during his campaign to keep taxes low in Florida, and improve the coastline through beach restoration and flood mitigation.

Seattle Seahawks sit at .500 after step back from winning formula
Fluker (calf) appeared to be OK. "He affected all of us. his wisdom and his charity and his love for this area". The Seahawks had one final chance to tie the game at the end of Sunday's contest against the Chargers.

DeSantis, 40, was considered an underdog before Trump tweeted his support for DeSantis in December, a month before he got into the race.

Gillum conceded the race at the same time Fox News was projecting his narrow loss.

DeSantis' victory as the next governor of Florida will also have a lasting impact on the state's Supreme Court.

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. Trump traveled to each state in the closing days of the election cycle to energize Republicans at "Make America Great Again" rallies.

In one of the most memorable lines in the debates, Gillum stopped short of calling DeSantis a racist but said "racists believe he is a racist".
