Andrew Gillum vs. Ron DeSantis

DeSantis stumbled out of the gate after winning the August 28 primary, telling Fox News that voters shouldn't "monkey this up" by electing Gillum, who was Florida's first black nominee for governor.

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 in Wisconsin, Democrat Tony Evers pulled off a narrow win in unseating Republican incumbent Scott Walker, according to data provider DDHQ. "Maybe 80,000 people will wake up and say, 'OK, we didn't vote the last time'".

Democrat Andrew Gillum, the African American mayor of Florida state capital Tallahassee, conceded Tuesday in his acrimonious battle for governor with Ron DeSantis, a member of the House of Representatives and ardent supporter of President Donald Trump.

Donald Trump narrowly won Florida's electoral votes in 2016 48-47 percent over Hillary Clinton, a difference of approximately 112,000 votes.

The gubernatorial race was a study in contrasts: a straight-talking, unapologetically progressive, black nominee running against a Tea Party figure who released a campaign ad in which his young children built Trump's fabled border wall out of toy bricks. He signed the Dream Defenders' "Freedom Pledge", which states support for the group's broader agenda - but Gillum's campaign said the candidate was only expressing support for a pledge not to accept campaign contributions from private prison companies. "So ignore him and vote, Florida!"

"How the hell am I supposed to know every single statement that somebody makes?".

A number of major Jewish philanthropists contributed to the campaign, including George Soros, Seth Klarman and Stacy Schusterman. In 2016, 21 percent of African-Americans were disenfranchised, according to The Sentencing Project .

It was Trump's support, including a July endorsement rally in Tampa, that helped propel DeSantis past a better-funded and more widely known opponent, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, in the August 28 Republican primary.

The documents showed that an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent posing as a developer had given Gillum a ticket to the Broadway show "Hamilton" and had accompanied him on boat tour by the Statue of Liberty during a 2016 trip to NY.

Accusations of race-baiting dogged Kemp, 55, and DeSantis, 40, who denied the allegations.

Gillum conceded the Florida governor race.

DeSantis' comments drew widespread criticism and became a theme in the general-election contest.

The large turnout difference wasn't just between the Senate and governor's race.

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".
