Donald Trump calls Andrew Gillum 'a failed Socialist Mayor'

Gillum in his AP interview called the comment a form of "gutter politics" that he said comes from the "Trump school" of trying to "fire up the base".

Among Democrats, billionaire club member and gubernatorial candidate Jeff Greene spent upwards of $15 million of his own money on attack ads against the two Democratic front-runners, Gwen Graham and Phil Levine, in the closing weeks.

Andrew Gillum talks with a supporter after speaking to voters and public school teachers at a rally in Miami Gardens in August. Gillum in his remarks to supporters on election night said he and supporters would seek to counter the "dark days that we've been under coming out of Washington".

The stage is set for a battle of polar opposites in Florida's race for governor.

This is a change from recent decades. He is poised to run a campaign that appeals to both African-American voters and progressive whites.

"He was not an unashamed liberal. It's very clear that Mr. DeSantis is taking a page directly from the campaign manual of Donald Trump", Andrew Gillum said on Fox News on Wednesday afternoon, hours after DeSantis made the monkey comment on the same cable news network.

Gillum has refused to answer detailed questions about his outside income while serving as mayor of Florida's capital city.

As the only non-millionaire in the Democratic Party, Andrew Gillum stressed his upbringing.

Gillum said, "DeSantis can do the bidding of big business and big lobbyists and Donald Trump and his divisive rhetoric". Sometimes Democrats have, too. "We won't be able to win if we moderate our views and make candidates seem like Republican-lite". His right-wing ideology went all the way left when he referred to an election of the 39-year-old Tallahassee mayor as a move that would "monkey this up".

Florida primary victor says black opponent would 'monkey up' the state
But there also are big questions about whether an ardent liberal can win a swing state like Florida , which Trump carried in 2016. The DeSantis campaign clarified in an email that his comments were directed at Gillum's policies, not the candidate himself.

DeSantis has emphasized his conservative credentials and military career, but it was the support by Trump that turned the race around in his favor.

President Donald Trump, on Twitter, criticized Gillum as a "failed socialist mayor" and praised Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis, who credits the president for helping him win.

Gillum didn't make race an issue in the primary.

It was a strong statement of unity that has served the progressive liberal well, not only in his run for the nomination, backed by George Soros and Bernie Sanders, but throughout his political career.

Progressives were noticeably thrilled with Gillum's achievement, and most marked it as a significant step forward for "Democratic socialists" and evidence of progressive cache within the Democratic Party, but there are concerns.

Final breakdowns of the vote are not yet available, but it appears that young voters and people of color came out for Gillum in droves.

"We're not really scared about Republicans throwing money at Andrew Gillum", she said. Gillum called them "beneath the intelligence of Floridians". Do you want an apology from Congressman DeSantis?

"I've got no doubt in saying that I don't expect any trouble my way because I know my conscience, I know how I vote, I know what my values and principles are", Gillum said. Either way, he definitely won't be voting for DeSantis.

"Our taxes have been cut and the red tape has been reduced". "But they're not as important to me as a functioning, healthy American democracy".
