DeSantis ‘not worried’ about trailing Gillum in polls, talks ‘Hamilton’ tickets

Republican Ron DeSantis had a fiery response Saturday to the flap over him calling his Democratic opponent for governor Andrew Gillum by his first name at two statewide debates. Gillum has campaign appearances scheduled in South Florida Thursday, where he will be asked by reporters about the correspondence.

Andrew Gillum, the Democratic gubernatorial candidate in Florida, can also deliver the type of punchline that compels the souls of bigoted men to spontaneously abandon their frail human forms and flee headlong into the night. DeSantis announced the release of his health care plan, tucked into his website a few hours before the debate, and defended the robust economy under Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican, after Gillum said many Floridians still struggle to make ends meet. First of all, he's got neo-Nazis helping him out in this state.

DeSantis, meanwhile, maintained he was unaware of both the nature of the conferences where he spoke and of his donor's racist remarks. One of the packages was delivered to her Florida office Wednesday when it was returned by the Postal Service, and the former national Democratic Party chair said her staff acted with bravery in dealing with the threat. He's using that money to now fund negative ads.

As the general election approaches, most public polling has put Gillum ahead of his Republican rival, former Congressman Ron DeSantis. "I'm simply saying the racists believe he is a racist". "In fact, we would encourage the Gillum campaign to join us in rooting out and exposing once and for all those who are behind this disgusting call".

DeSantis, however, mentioned the Broadway tickets several times during the course of the debate. When asked these and other controversial moments, DeSantis pushed back on the racist insinuations while declaring "I am not going to bow down to the altar of political correctness".




Reached Friday, Barnes said "I don't have any information other than the email exchange". The campaign subsequently released receipts from the NY trip, but said that no receipt for "Hamilton" was included because the mayor had thought the ticket originated with his brother.ImageMr. Some of the friends with whom Gillum and his wife vacationed on that trip were investors in a Tallahassee hotel that later received a $2 million grant through a unanimous vote by Gillum and city commissioners.

The candidates also had stark differences on issues. IL shipping magnate Uihlein wrote a $500,000 check, along with $250,000 to another state committee that has in turn transferred nearly all its funding to DeSantis. "He wants you to believe that he is not under investigation".

The candidates also differ on voting rights for felons.

'If we do that, we will pull down $6 billion from the federal government that will go into this state's health care system, so we can hire more doctors, more nurses, more nurse practitioners, ' Gillum said.

"Some people were paying more for premiums than for rent, so people couldn't afford it". He said he envisions a state of Florida where anti-BDS legislation is enforced, where support for funding security in Jewish day schools continues and where people speak up and speak out against anti-Semitism in the communities, college campus and high schools.
