Jake Tapper Busts Donald Trump For Watching CNN

He has also spoken about boosting trade between Israel and Florida. "And Mr. DeSantis is his acolyte", Gillum, who was a surprise victor in August's Democratic primary, defeating four other opponents, including former Congresswoman Gwen Graham.

The CNN poll, conducted by SSRS Research, gives Democrats a +3 turnout advantage, an electorate not seen in any statewide election in Florida for at least the past twenty years.

DeSantis and Gillum went on to exchange several tense statements over the course of the evening. An earlier debate was cancelled because of Hurricane Michael, which struck the Panhandle near Tallahassee on October 10 and kept Gillum off the campaign trail for 10 days.

"When we're down range in Iraq, it didn't matter your race".

"Oh, that's what I thought".

Christopher Kise, an attorney for Corey, has previously disputed the account given by Gillum's campaign and said that his client did not receive any money for the Costa Rica lodging and that Corey did not purchase the Hamilton ticket or swap it for a concert ticket.

In both races, 11% of likely voters say there's a chance they could change their minds before Election Day.

"I have never met anyone with more character, courage and decency than Bill Nelson", Biden, wearing a plaid shirt with the sleeves rolled up and navy pants, said to cheers. "I have been black all my life".

But race has been a part of the campaign. Bill Nelson, who is being challenged by GOP Gov. Rick Scott.

"You need to be able to work with the president", DeSantis said. The Villages is Trump country. "We have an opportunity on November 6, as a collective, a state, to say we deserve better, we want better". Sherry Ray drove over from nearby Ocala, Fla. And weak people bully, lie, and intimidate.

DeSantis denied claims he denies the science behind the issue, saying, "I don't want to be an alarmist".

While President Trump didn't "choose" DeSantis to run, his support has made all the difference.

Gillum never directly answered DeSantis.

In his speeches, DeSantis calls Gillum a "socialist", an unfounded label Gillum rejects. While at the same time push hard on DeSantis lack of substance on the issues to be more to the point healthcare, as well as possible cuts to Social Security and Medicare.

During the October 21 CNN debate, he accused his Republican opponent of fanning racial animus ever since DeSantis first warned Florida voters not to "monkey this up" by electing Gillum.

The trips to Costa Rica and New York City came to light after the FBI investigation broke into the open in June 2017. Gillum said. "It's not only good for those 800,000 people who would get access, but it's also good for folks like small businesses who right now can't afford to get access to health care".

DeSantis promised, if elected, he would help Puerto Rico which is continuing to recover from Hurricane Maria. In a polling memo sent to major DeSantis donors, campaign chair Susie Wiles said, "In short, this assumes a challenging electoral scenario for Republicans, but one we are presently rising above".

CNN host Jake Tapper on Monday took a swipe at President Donald Trump over his criticism of the Florida gubernatorial debate he moderated on Sunday night, thanking the president for watching CNN.
