DeSantis vs. Gillum: Ignore 'socialist' name-calling. Here's where they stand on 4 key issues - NY Daily News

A new poll of likely voters from Quinnipiac University shows Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, the Democratic gubernatorial nominee, ahead of former U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., as the clock ticks down until the election in two weeks.

"I am not under FBI investigation and neither is my city government", Gillum said.

Democratic consultant Steve Schale, though, thinks Gillum is winning and the debate didn't hand DeSantis the game-changing moment he needed. Those questions were fanned Tuesday by the release of hundreds of pages of emails and photos documenting some of Gillum's trips with Corey and meetings with other lobbyists. By the time Gillum and DeSantis squared off in Broward County, nearly 1.4 million Floridians already had cast their ballots.

Gillum called himself "a deep and unapologetic friend to Israel" and recalled the trips that he has taken to the country as part of a program with Ramat HaSharon, a coastal city near the West Bank. Most of their supporters say they've made their decision, though more of Gillum's supporters say they probably won't change their minds, 87 percent, than DeSantis' supporters, 79 percent. "My wife and I take vacations, and we pay for our own vacations". In September, Kise said his client never received money from Gillum. 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. "I'm unethical, participated in illegal and elicit activity, you name it", he said. An attorney representing a Tallahassee lobbyist turned over the documents Tuesday in response to a subpoena from Florida's ethics commission.

"I was aware that Adam Corey and (an agent known as) Mike Miller arranged so that we could go and see the show".

"'We are hungry!" Migrants wail at Mexico-Guatemala border
Trump spoke with the incoming Mexican president earlier this month and claimed that "we will work well together". The foreign minister, Luis Videgaray, asked the United Nations to assist with what could be a crush of requests.

Gillum also hit DeSantis on his refusal to reveal receipts related to $145,000 worth of taxpayer-funded travel when he was in Congress for trips that included interviews with Fox News.

On score, Democrats believe they scored a solid win, arguing Gillum remained calm and collected in contrast with DeSantis. "Mike Miller and the crew have tickets for us for Hamilton tonight at 8 p.m.", Corey texted Gillum on August 10, 2016, according to the records.

Shawn Kinsey, chairman of the Polk County Democratic Party, said the robocall, which was left on his voicemail, was "disgusting" and "took me aback".

Gillum said that as "the candidate who believes in science", he would be better positioned to tackle issues such as water pollution and mass transit. Gillum has insisted that the "Hamilton" tickets came from his brother. Gillum attended the Broadway show along with his brother, Corey, and "Miller", the undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent.

Wilcox said elected officials are allowed to accept gifts from family, but not lobbyists. 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.
