Gillum says he supports Israel; DeSantis gets Pence’s help

Gillum says he supports Israel; DeSantis gets Pence’s help

"Only one candidate in this race has promised to expand Medicaid and coverage for pre-existing conditions for all Floridians - and that's Andrew Gillum", said McAuliffe on Wednesday. He has denied the remark was a reference to Gillum's race. The latest records reveal the undercover agent, known as Mike Miller, likely paid a $4,386 food tab for a Gillum political committee fundraiser.

The tickets were a gift from undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agents. DeSantis did take money from someone who called President Barack Obama a racist slur (although he condemned the comments and said he will no longer take money from the contributor). A gift from a family member would not have triggered state ethics rules for public disclosure.Geoff Burgan, a spokesman for Mr. Gillum's campaign, said on August 31 in response to written questions from The New York Times that Marcus Gillum had given the mayor the ticket. "No", he said. "I'm for police accountability, but law enforcement society can not work, and, quite frankly, law enforcement can not do its job if it does not have a trusting relationship with the community". One of the documents released Friday also shows that Gillum's then-finance director told Corey that Gillum sent a thank-you note to the agent posing as Mike Miller.

Gillum then called DeSantis a liar, and DeSantis called Gillum corrupt, pointing at Broadway tickets to "Hamilton" that were supplied by an undercover FBI agent investigating corruption at Tallahassee City Hall.

Gillum replied, "Awesome news about Hamilton".

Gillum said that Florida voters are "sick of racist attacks, we're sick of bigoted attacks, we're sick of divisive language and strategy".

Florida gubernatorial candidates Ron DeSantis (R) and Andrew Gillum (D) faced off in a debate on Wednesday night, during which, the Tallahassee mayor accused his opponent of receiving political support from bigots.

Justin Schmidt of Davie, a Gillum supporter who attended the forum at TKAE, feels that the Democratic candidate would be a strong supporter for the State of Israel if elected governor.


Gillum repeated his explanation that, at the time, he assumed his brother Marcus had paid for the Hamilton ticket, by trading it for a Jay-Z concert ticket.

Corey (the lobbyist): "That would be epic!" "I arrived at that theater and received my ticket from my brother".

"These messages only confirm what we have said all along", Gillum claimed.

Ron DeSantis, the Republican candidate for Florida governor, spoke at a pro-Israel rally at Mo's Bagels & Deli in Aventura on October 24, while Andrew Gillum, the Democratic candidate, spoke at a candidates forum at Temple Kol Ami Emanu-El in Plantation on October 25. We did go to see "Hamilton.' I did get my ticket to 'Hamilton" from my brother. "I'm not going to let the media smear me".

Gillum: "I can be free by 6 p.m". DeSantis said he wanted to target government action at people who should not have guns instead of law-abiding citizens.

With under two weeks until election day, Gillum maintains a slim lead ahead of DeSantis in the polls. He's saying that some threatening situations might have been defused before they turned threatening if people had less reason to fear being confronted by police, not that it's never right for a cop to defend himself.
