Ballots Cast Top 2 Million In Florida As Candidates Drum Up Votes

Democratic candidate for Florida Governor Andrew Gillum

"Well hello there. I is the Negro Andrew Gillum", the recording says, "and I be asking you to make me governor of this here state of Florida".

Another email noted that Gillum sent Miller a personal note to thank him for co-sponsoring the food. I'm not calling Mr. DeSantis a racist. Recent polling shows Gillum with a double digit lead over the former Republican congressman, despite the shadows cast by a probe into potential public corruption in Tallahassee, where he serves as mayor.

"Think about what he wants you to believe", DeSantis said.

The new documents suggest that an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who went by the name of "Mike Miller" may have helped pay for a fundraiser dinner for Gillum's political committee. The agents had also arranged for a boat tour of New York Harbor.Mr. Gillum, who was in New York on business, initially declined the hotel room offer, but then told Mr. Corey he did need a place to stay for the second night."I was mistaken, I think I will need a room tomorrow night", Mr. Gillum wrote to Mr. Corey on August 10, 2016."O.K.", replied Mr. Corey, who had previously asked Mr. Miller for separate rooms for himself, Mr. Gillum, and Mr. Gillum's brother. DeSantis went after Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, Fla., for lying about receiving a ticket to the musical, "Hamilton", from an undercover FBI agent investigating his office for corruption. I did get my ticket for Hamilton from my brother. DeSantis was probably self-conscious about the fact that he no longer holds public office while Gillum does and was trying not to remind the audience of that by calling him "Mayor".

Former New York City Mayor Bloomberg and his affiliated Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund have collectively given the Gillum PAC $500,000, while two national unions, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees and the American Federation of Teachers, have given more than $2 million combined. One, Jacob Engels, a contributor to the far-right conspiracy website Infowars, shouted that Gillum is "a radical Jew hater who supports mob violence", drawing a loud chorus of boos from the crowd. I'm saying the racists believe he's a racist'. Adam Corey became a lobbyist.

"We've really seen the collapsing of political discourse", Gillum said.

Gillum's campaign had claimed on September 4 and again this week that he received the ticket from his brother, Marcus Gillum, despite the contradictory evidence. "I arrived at that theater and received my ticket from my brother".

Gillum went on to say that he is in favor of law enforcement "repairing the breach" and making sure that there is a good community relationship. Gillum added. "I wanted to correct him, y'all, but I didn't want to be petty".

Korge said there's more than 400 people scheduled to attend a Thursday fundraiser at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables Thursday, and that excitement hasn't waned.

Gillum's story of how he paid for his ticket and his villa vacay is now being picked apart by the opposition, thrown in his face as proof that he's unfit for the Governor's mansion, and re-spun by the Gillum camp heading into the final two weeks of a testy and tumultuous campaign. It is against Florida law for political committee to accept donations without reporting them.
