Biden Thinks He’s in Miami During Tampa Campaign Rally

Ron DeSantis

Gillum is now the Mayor of Tallahassee.

A few minutes later, Gillum called DeSantis Trump's "stooge" who wanted to "worship at the feet of Donald Trump". "I want to look at this and do what makes sense for Florida", and touted his recent endorsement by the Everglades Trust.

The former congressman who resigned in April in part because of a House ethics complaint against him repeatedly cut off Gillum's well-articulated debate responses while continuously calling Gillum by his first name.

Gillum was the target of a supposed Federal Bureau of Investigation sting after an undercover agent gifted him a pair of tickets to the hit Broadway musical Hamilton, which DeSantis tried to flip into a moment to reveal Gillum as untrustworthy because he didn't report the gift to campaign officials. Tapper also noted the controversy surrounding the Republican's first reference to Gillum as the nominee, when DeSantis said voting for Gillum, an African-American, would "monkey this up". "I'll be a governor for all Floridians".

"[DeSantis] has only continued.to bring attention to the color of my skin", Gillum said.

"The truth is I'm black".

"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. U.S. Sen. Cory Booker was here this weekend.

One of the high points of the debate for DeSantis was when he asked Gillum if he would cooperate with law enforcement on immigration. Then the Tallahassee mayor added that DeSantis "is trying out to be the Trump apprentice".

Gillum, though, had the support of national progressive groups that coalesced around him and helped him turn out liberal voters all over the state.

After the face-off ended, Trump tweeted to declare for DeSantis "a great debate victory tonight against Andrew Gillum". DeSantis said Gillum was unfit to lead.

"It dumps all those people against their will, regardless of if they want to stay in their current plans, it dumps on a single-payer government system,"' DeSantis said.

President Trump's loyalists here at Florida's premier retirement community fear Andrew Gillum. "But I think I will be better positioned to advance Florida's priorities because I have a productive relationship with the administration", DeSantis said.

"Given the threats Florida faces from intense hurricanes and rising sea levels, don't Florida voters deserve to know where you stand on this issue?"

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. The "monkey up" comment said it all.

Gillum took the stage at St. Petersburg College's Gibbs Campus with a swipe at DeSantis for running negative ads as the hurricane came ashore. Instead, he accused Gillum of wanting to create a state income tax, even though that is not now allowed under the state constitution. "That shouldn't be too much to ask in the state of Florida". His campaign website's "issues" page makes no mention of it.

As early voting begins in Florida this week, that link is tenuous.

Gillum hosted the "get-out-and-vote" rally to encourage college students to use the early voting site at the Yuengling Center, which opened Monday at Gate A from 7 a.m to 7 p.m. until November 4.
