Gillum calls on Federal Bureau of Investigation to tell voters he is not a target

GOP Senate candidates in Arizona embrace Trump

"We know that DeSantis is gonna continue, essentially, and be a third term for Gov. Rick Scott and we know he's not going to be a champion on those four issues we care most about that affect working families", Garza said.

Trump on Twitter said that not only did DeSantis win but that "his opponent in November is his biggest dream". "In the handbook of Donald Trump, they no longer do whistle calls. To characterize it as anything else is absurd", said Stephen Lawson, a spokesman for the campaign.

"I'm not going to get down in the gutter with DeSantis and Trump".

The poll was commissioned by EDGE Communications, the politial consulting firm of Christian Ulvert, the former senior consultant for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Philip Levine, who lost to Gillum Tuesday.

If Gillum becomes governor in Florida and Democrats win majority control of the U.S. House in the midterm elections, his victory nearly certainly means the Democrats will lose whatever inhibitions they may have about impeaching the president.

"Let's build off the success we've had" under Scott, DeSantis said in a Fox News appearance Wednesday morning.

"It's disgusting that Ron DeSantis is launching his general election campaign with racist dog whistles", Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Terrie Rizzo wrote on Twitter.

"I think you're pushing that button for a very specific reason, '" he added.

"I join the Tampa Bay Times to make a clarification".

In other races, a former air force fighter pilot, Representative Martha McSally, won the Republican primary in Arizona to replace the retiring Republican Senator Jeff Flake, a vocal critic of Trump.

One thing is certain: The Gillum-DeSantis race will be bitter, hard fought, and expensive - costing millions of dollars.

Gillum, a graduate of Florida A&M University, is viewed as the continuation of a progressive surge and a shift away from the establishment also seen in the victory shocking victory of Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez over longtime Conrgressman Joe Crowley in a primary for his New York House seat.

The RGA is trying to showcase corruption problems with Tallahassee government-including an FBI investigation. He was elected mayor in 2014.

But while Trump's support for DeSantis might offer a target for Democrats, the Republican candidate is preparing a counterattack that will tie Gillum to supporters and policy positions that energized the progressive Democratic voting base but may not be popular with the majority of voters.

Civil rights leader the Rev. Jesse Jackson is urging Floridians to focus on issues such as senior services, lower tuition for students, better wages and gender equality in a governor's race that quickly heated up the day after the state's primary.
