The state capital has had one of Florida's highest crime rates in recent years, although it's been going down.

Ron DeSantis was obviously talking about Florida not making the wrong decision to embrace the socialist policies that Andrew Gillum espouses. "To characterize it as anything else is absurd", Lawson said by email. DeSantis' remarks, however, prove the limits of Trumpism in a general election that will ultimately be decided by millions of voters who are not registered Republicans.

The election Gillum said, was impacted was Hillary Clinton's run for President in 2016 when the FBI closed and then reopened an investigation into her use of a private server for classified emails.
