Midterm elections results: DeSantis DFEATS Gillum in MAJOR red victory in Florida

Andrew Gillum, Democratic nominee for governor of Florida, conceded to Republican Ron DeSantis shortly before 11 p.m. on election night.

DeSantis, justifiably, thumped his chest in victory.

Democrats picked up governorships in Kansas and at least three other U.S. states on Tuesday but failed to win high-profile races in Florida and OH, as voters cast ballots in three dozen gubernatorial contests across the country.

In the end, Trump's candidate won.

The Ponte Vedra Republican pledged to veto any and all tax increases for the next four years, contending that a state's low-tax environment is its greatest asset for expanding the economy. At a recent DeSantis rally, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said the race was "cotton-pickin' important".

His victory signals the endurance of Donald Trump's Republican party in the nation's most populous swing state, dealing a punishing blow to liberals who were fired up around a potential rebuke of their state's support of the president nearly exactly two years ago.

As expected, statewide Democratic candidates fared well in South Florida, where the party dominates voter rolls.

Accordingly, Trump and race occupied the mind of almost every voter.

DeSantis addressed his supporters in Orlando on Tuesday night.

DeSantis called Gillum a formidable opponent.

Back in August, Gillum made history by winning Florida's Democratic primary for governor.

Another theme struck by DeSantis and his supporters on Monday was an appeal to Hispanic voters.

"I can guarantee you this: I'm not going anywhere", Gillum said. "To me, it's all about results", DeSantis added.

The two races were seen as a test of whether liberal candidates could prevail in Southern states, where centrist Democrats have repeatedly lost, by appealing to a coalition of young and minority voters.

If that line earned Gillum viral praise and national recognition, his indirect connections to an FBI investigation into public corruption in Tallahassee was a drag on his campaign, which at times struggled to explain Gillum's relationship with a former lobbyist and friend and his run-ins with an undercover federal agent. The Mayor had vehemently denied being a "target".

DeSantis also dismissed polls showing him as being behind, because he believes he will do well with Independents as well as Republicans, and spoke out against Gillum's plans for higher wages, expanded Medicaid coverage, and tax hikes.

But eleventh-hour developments in a state ethics investigation separate from the FBI's suggested Gillum is more implicated than previously thought.

On the Senate side, Rick Scott's lead is just a tad less than DeSantis'. "At least in this election". King, who ran in the primary against Gillum, Gwen Graham, Philip Levine and Greene, is CEO of Elevation Financial Group, a Winter Park-based company that builds affordable housing. The gubernatorial finalists in 2018 weren't supposed to be there in the first place. The poll has an error margin of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points, so do with that as you will.

In this case, that appears to be right. Gillum supports a ban on assault weapons and wants to repeal Florida's stand your ground law.

"We could not be prouder of the way that we ran this race".
