Democrats pick up United States governorships but lose Florida, Ohio

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

The graphic showed Democrat Andrew Gillum defeating former GOP Rep. Ron DeSantis by 49.4 percent to 48.8 percent with 99 percent of the precincts reporting.

Gillum also spoke to the crowd about the issues that caused him to run for office and said his message to Trump and DeSantis is clear, "The politics of hatred and separation have come to an end".

"But I want you to know, I want you to know, I want you to know that in spite of our congratulating him on his victory this evening, nothing that we believe in is compromised".

But the Republican defended himself and his supporters against the racist label, while slamming his Democratic opponent for backing a major tax-hike proposal and wanting to expand government programs, including health care. "We may not have all shown up in the way that we thought and hoped that we would".

Ron DeSantis will be the next Florida governor, extending Republican control of the state's highest office to a sixth straight four-year term and proving that a candidacy nearly entirely about President Donald Trump can win the top office in a major state. "I think it's redder than blue", Orlando trial lawyer John Morgan, a political rainmaker who frequently backs Democratic candidates and who toyed with the notion of running for governor this year, told The News Service of Florida on Wednesday. "That race was swung by Donald Trump to DeSantis, who's now behind". He enjoyed support from President Trump throughout his campaign.

The Miami Herald reported that he won Florida by about 56,000 votes. I get my bank statements sent there. "All the way along this path", Gillum said. Gillum, the current mayor of Tallahassee, has 50 percent of support among likely voters, versus 46 percent for his GOP rival.

When do the midterm elections 2018 results expected to come out?
In Miami, Florida International University political scientist Kathryn DePalo said: "It's really a base election". The volatile campaign was marked by clashes over race, immigration and trade.

While DeSantis owed his Republican nomination to Trump, Gillum won a crowded Democratic primary race with a significant boost from Vermont Sen.

Gillum had also faced scrutiny over accepting Hamilton tickets from an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who was conducting an ethics probe.

During the campaign, Gillum repeatedly launched accusations of racism against DeSantis, which DeSantis firmly denied. DeSantis, though, essentially ran his campaign from the Fox News studio near the Capitol, appearing several times a week to defend Trump on issues ranging from the Russian Federation investigation to the promised border wall.

The stark differences between the two candidates and the negative nature of the race were crystallized in two vitriolic debates.

DeSantis also criticized Gillum for signing a pledge for the civil rights group Dream Defenders.
