Sanders congratulates Gillum after Florida primary win

Sanders initially endorsed Gillum on August 1 and campaigned for him at a rally in the state earlier this month.

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) has prevailed in the Florida Republican gubernatorial primary Tuesday.

"[Gillum] is the son of a school bus driver and construction worker and those experiences shaped his vision for Florida", said Democratic Governors Association Chair Gov. Jay Inslee, D-Wash., in a statement. He is now the Florida's first African-American major-party gubernatorial nominee and, if elected in November, would become the state's first black governor. "I'm trying to make Florida even better, he's trying to make Florida Venezuela".

The Democratic primary is now close between former Rep. Gwen Graham - a centrist and daughter of former governor and Sen. "Now, it is New York's turn". Tonight, Floridians joined Andrew in standing up and demanding real change and showed our nation what is possible when we stand together.

DeSantis tied himself closely to Trump in the primary, and it paid off. "That's what the political revolution is all about and Andrew Gillum is helping to lead it".

At 39, Gillum was by far the youngest candidate in the crowded field, but the most experienced in public office.

DeSantis has run as a strong supporter of Trump since launching his campaign in January, after the president tweeted in December 2017 that he'd make a "GREAT" governor of Florida.

Florida gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis, who officially clinched the GOP nomination Tuesday night, appeared on The Ingraham Angle and is already taking aim at his Democratic opponent.

Fox News projected the victory at approximately 8:30pm Tuesday evening, with sitting Governor Rick Scott -faced with term limits- winning the GOP nomination for the Senate.

Murphy, who unseated GOP incumbent John Mica in 2016, easily defeated a primary challenge in the 7th District from Chardo Richardson, who was backed by NY democratic socialist candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Gillum had consistently trailed in the few polls on the race, but scored a boost with the endorsement of Sen.
