Florida Democrat Andrew Gillum targeted by second racist robocall

Democratic candidate for Florida Governor Andrew Gillum

"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.

The FBI is investigating whether the city directed redevelopment funds at specific projects to favor friends and acquaintances. "Just hissing at me to call him out", he said.

According to Politico, Trump plans to visit Florida twice to campaign for DeSantis and for current Gov. Rick Scott, who is running a tight Senate race against incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson.

"This campaign is powered by the people, as evidenced by the almost 100,000 small-dollar, grassroots donors supporting Mayor Gillum and his vision for Florida".

"He wants you to believe that he's not under investigation", he said. Gillum proposes hiking the corporate income tax by 45 percent to pay for increased education funding. The message read, "Mike Miller and the crew have tickets for us for "Hamilton" tonight at 8 p.m.", and Gillum responded, "Awesome news about 'Hamilton'".

"DeSantis, on the other hand, hit Gillum over the mayor's acceptance of tickets to the Broadway musical "Hamilton" from an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent in the summer of 2016 - a revelation in documents made public on Tuesday in connection with a state ethics commission probe". The campaign subsequently released receipts from the NY trip, but said that no receipt for "Hamilton" was included because the mayor had thought the ticket originated with his brother.ImageMr.

DeSantis crticized Gillum's connection to the Dream Defenders and its support of the BDS movement at his rally.

NASA’s sea ice survey captures freakish , perfectly rectangular iceberg
The iceberg NASA photographed is tabular, which means its basically table-shape: flat on the top and vertical at the edges. When an iceberg breaks off from a shelf of floating ice like Larsen C, there's no friction controlling how it breaks up.

In a statement issued Monday morning, Trump called Gillum "a thief" who is "Mayor of poorly run Tallahassee, said to be one of the most corrupt cities in the Country!"

Gillum, who graduated from historically black Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, made a point earlier in the speech to mention that he was a FAMU Rattler. "I'm simply saying racists believe he's a racist".

Corey (the lobbyist): "That would be epic!" Gillum said. "I wanted to correct him, y'all, but I didn't want to be petty. I don't think anyone denies Israel has the right to defend itself".

Ron DeSantis, the Republican candidate for Florida governor, spoke at a pro-Israel rally at Mo's Bagels & Deli in Aventura on October 24, while Andrew Gillum, the Democratic candidate, spoke at a candidates forum at Temple Kol Ami Emanu-El in Plantation on October 25.

"Mike Miller and the crew have tickets for us for Hamilton at 8 p.m.", a lobbyist pal of Gillum's named Adam Corey texted him on August 10 2016.

Even if Gillum's account is correct, however, under Florida law it's still considered an indirect gift, even if his brother was acting as a go-between. While he hasn't commented on the new documents, during Wednesday's debate he referred to a Jay-Z song when he said, "Florida's got 99 problems, and "Hamilton" isn't one of them". "And as far as I know that was the deal".

Gillum maintains that he paid for his own rooms on that trip, though his campaign has apparently only supplied receipts for two nights' stay, the Sun-Sentinel reported. It is against Florida law for political committee to accept donations without reporting them.
