Florida governor and senate races are too close to call

The commission is investigating whether Gillum accepted gifts from lobbyists after a Tallahassee businessman and persistent critic of Gillum filed a complaint.

Although if he is saying that, he's destined to have an interesting relationship with Florida law enforcement as governor.

The records also suggest that a lobbyist friend provided Mr. Gillum and his brother with a hotel room in NY - and possibly paid for much of a vacation the mayor shared in Costa Rica.Mr. Gillum never reported any of the perks as gifts, as required by law for elected officials in Florida.The lobbyist, Adam Corey, is a friend of Mr. Gillum's since college and a central figure in an ongoing F.B.I. investigation into suspected corruption at Tallahassee's community redevelopment agency.

"That's just wrong", DeSantis said at a campaign event in Orlando on October 23, the Sun-Sentinel reported. Mr. Gillum has said that he was told he is not the investigation's target.

"DeSantis is a principled leader with a proven record", Pence said. "More will come out".

The jabs flew from there, with DeSantis calling Gillum a career politician who distorted the truth about apparently accepting improper gifts from a lobbyist friend and businessmen who were actually undercover FBI agents investigating Tallahassee's community redevelopment agency.

Republican former U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis and Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum agreed that some people are being pushed over the edge by extreme political rhetoric. Gillum has maintained that his brother swapped a ticket to a Jay-Z/Beyonce concert in exchange for the "Hamilton" ticket. The texts also showed that he stayed in a NY hotel room purchased by Miller.

"For me, as an owner of a Jewish deli and as someone who is very pro-Israel, it's important to host and get to know candidates at the state, local and national level that are pro-Israel so we can advocate for that cause".

Gillum did not take the president's insults lying down, however, and called out Trump for not having the guts to tag him in his latest tweet. The campaign also provided a bank statement showing a $400 cash withdrawal it said went to reimbursing Mr. Corey for the couple's accommodations. "We see it on the ground - in some of the state's most conservative counties - people are showing up, volunteering and voting for Andrew Gillum because they want a governor who will make Floridians a priority", said Carlie Waibel, spokeswoman for Gillum's campaign. "Why would an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent posing as a contractor give him a thousand dollar ticket to Hamilton?". "At the time we believed that they were reserved by friends of Adam's, Mike Miller", he said.

"I know firsthand that when we start going down that road, it can be very, very deadly", DeSantis said. "I'm not going to let the media smear me". "He lied the other day". The event followed a luncheon in Palm Beach County, and between the two events the campaign raised around $2.5 million, according to Democratic booster Chris Korge, who helped coordinate the two events.

Opposition to Israel is "nothing more than warmed over anti-Semitism", DeSantis said, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. When asked to return that money, he said no.

The Republican former congressman also recalled Gillum's remarks from a few nights earlier. "The "monkey up" comment said it all", Gillum said.

The story is nearly certain to live on. DeSantis did talk at a conference held by a man with white nationalist views.

The incident occurred in August 2016 and is just coming to light just two weeks from the hotly contested Florida governor's race, in which Gillum is leading his Republican rival, Ron DeSantis.

Andrew Gillum and Adam Corey met and became friends while in college.
