November 17 at 6:21 PM  Democrat Andrew Gillum once again granted republican rep Ron DeSantis in Florida governor’s contest, as intricate one of the state’s two fierce all over the country, and struck an allied by President Trump as top manager in the key street.
But Tallahassee mayor, who would have been the state’s first black governor, promised that “this fight continues” in a Facebook letter where he stood in front of a lake together with his wife RJ
“RJ and I wanted to take a moment to congratulate Mr. DeSantis to become governor of the great state of Florida, “said Gillum. “I’ll tell you this has been our journey of our lives.”
Gillum, who upset a more established candidate to win the democratic governor premier and seen as a rising star in the Democratic Party, signaled that he was not done with politics.
“We wanted to make every vote … as long as it was a statutory vote, we wanted these votes to count,” says Gillum. “We also want you to know that, although this choice may be beyond us … it’s not just about a election cycle. It was about creating the kind of change in this situation that really lets the voices of the week revert in our spring government. “
Gillum had originally granted on election night, but canceled the concession for a machine recount to occur for both the governor’s contest and the highly strained senate race that puts Sen. Commander. Bill Nelson (D) against Gov. Rick Scott (R). This race was still not resolved on Saturday, as important counties continued to count on voices after hand after a machine audit failed to widen the margin sufficiently.
The machine countdown ended on Thursday and confirmed that DeSantis had won the race; Florida elected officials had planned to certify DeSanti’s victory on Tuesday. But Gillum had not confirmed that he would accept the defeat until Saturday afternoon.
After the machine has told. DeSantis said in a statement that he was focusing on his transition to governor and urged Gillum to meet him.
“Ideas must provide space for guiding and bringing people to the future of Florida. With the campaign now, that’s where all my focus will be,” says DeSantis.
The manual story continued on Saturday in the senate competition, where Scott led tight. The machine and then manual conversion were triggered automatically because the original margin between Scott and Nelson was within 0.25 percent of the legal threshold. This recount is required to end at 12 o’clock on Sunday and has spotlighted the chaotic rolling system in Florida and listened back to the vision of the 2000 president’s story in the Sunshine State.
On entering the story, Nelson Scott struck more than 12,000 votes, and his campaign had hoped a re-examination of votes – especially in the strongly democratic Broward County – would help him close the gap. Initial results from a manual conversion did not seem to be close enough to enable Nelson to overcome the deficit.
DeSanti’s ascension to the board represents a major victory for President Trump, who handpicked the congressional leader when he was the GOP underdog and headlined two rallies in Florida during the campaign closing days.
DeSantis adapted to the president and broadcast a television ad where he was read “The Art of the Deal” to one of his children and as the governor would be in a strong position to help Trump’s re-election campaign in the country’s largest swinging state.
Gillum ran on progressive politicians as “Medicare for All” and a $ 15 hour minimum wage and threw back what some saw as racist attacks on his candidacy. After winning the primary, DeSantis said that Florida voters would not “monkey up this” by voting for Gillum; and Trump cheated the Democrat as a “thief”.
A Gillum supporter called the democrat “the way forward”.
“He handled this with such grace and class,” said Guy Wheeler, 62, a therapist in Fort Lauderdale. “He could have bowed low, but I think even his opponent, including the president, respects how he handled it.”
Wheeler said the mayor of Tallahassee raised the subject of contest competition in a way that helped move the call forward.
“He lit the armpit and he noticed what we all know is out,” said Wheeler. “I do not want to compare him with [Barack] Obama, but he is on the main part of the movement that will pull the country together.”
