Ron DeSantis says electing a Black person would ‘monkey’ things up

"I think it's absolutely ridiculous", Rodgers said to Hill.TV co-hosts Krystal Ball and Buck Sexton on "Rising". "I regret that his mentor in politics is Donald Trump". "To characterize it as anything else is absurd".

In Arizona, primary contests were shadowed by the death of Sen.

With 52 percent of the vote, McSally easily defeated arch conservative Kelli Ward, a former state senator, and Joe Arpaio, an immigration hardliner who was convicted of criminal contempt and pardoned by Trump past year.

The governor's race will probably become a referendum on Trump.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey planned to name a replacement to fill McCain's seat after the primary.

"It's sort of the like the Florida guy versus the Fox guy, and we're going to see if that's sufficient anymore", Tallahassee-based Republican strategist Rick Wilson told the Chicago Tribune.

"Ron DeSantis was obviously talking about Florida not making the wrong decision to embrace the socialist policies that Andrew Gillum espouses", said a spokesperson for the candidate. "Floridians want a leader who will bring them together; Ron DeSantis has shown that he would only divide Florida".

DeSantis's campaign featured an ad in which he encourages his toddler to use blocks to "build the wall" - a reference to Trump's border wall with Mexico - and dresses his baby in a "Make America Great Again" outfit.

A defiant DeSantis said, on Thursday, during a radio interview that the flak he's received for saying those words Wednesday amounts to "silly P.C. stuff" and that he was not sending "some double-secret coded message" about Gillum, who is black.

"We'll be a good combination for each other", Gillum said of Nelson. "My four opponents collectively spent over 90 million dollars. I don't think there's any other way to interpret it".

If elected, Gillum promised to work for universal health care and "common sense" gun laws in a state where there has been a spate of mass shootings.

He was also backed by a coalition of groups like the Collective PAC, which is dedicated to elevating African-American candidates; Indivisible, an organization formed in response to President Donald Trump's election in 2016; and the Working Families Party.

Episode 163 talks about Andrew Gillum's win in Florida, a Republican panic-list of upcoming Democratic investigations, and Louis C.K.'s attempted comeback.

Republicans and Democrats agreed Wednesday that the fundamental rules of Florida politics don't change: Both races at the top of the ticket will be close.
