Republicans Score Major Upsets in Florida

MSNBC Accidentally Airs Results Of Florida Governor's Race In Test 'Misfire.' Guess Who's 'Winning'?

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

But Republican Mike DeWine defeated Democrat Richard Cordray in OH, one of the highest-profile governor's races, according to an NBC News projection.

In Colorado, Democrat Jared Polis was set to become the first openly gay man to be elected governor of a U.S. state, after NBC News projected him to win against Republican Walker Stapleton. Attacking Gillum during an appearance on Fox News, DeSantis, referring to successes in Florida achieved by Scott, said "the last thing we need to do is to monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases, and bankrupting the state". He enjoyed support from President Trump throughout his campaign.

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.

DeSantis won with 49.7 percent of the votes, with ballots in his favour totalling 4,052,118 votes.

The race was among the most watched in the U.S. midterms, with Trump throwing his weight behind DeSantis and Gillum endorsed by former Democratic president Barack Obama and former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

In turn, Gillum was assailed over alleged ties to a radical far-left group associated with anti-Semitism and Palestinian terrorism.

The gubernatorial race is arguably a bigger deal. Trump traveled to each state in the closing days of the election cycle to energize Republicans at "Make America Great Again" rallies.

"My most significant and valued supporter is standing right next to me, despite what the media might say", DeSantis said of his wife Casey. You both get dirty, but the pig likes it.

Joyner said he moved to Florida to vote in the race. The FBI is probing whether developers were able to influence projects in the city by funneling gifts to elected officials. The agent was posing as a businessman interested in investing in Tallahassee, according to local reports. DeSantis hammered Gillum's ethics and honesty, questioning whether he has been telling the truth about his role in the ongoing FBI investigation.

Gillum claimed he thought the ticket came from his younger brother, and acknowledged that he "should have asked more questions".
