Florida gov hopeful reportedly got Hamilton tickets from undercover FBI agent

There was a lot of mud slung around at Wednesday's governor debate, but even amid all of that, the choice of Andrew Gillum to refer to his opponent as "Mr. DeSantis" while Ron DeSantis referred to Gillum as "Andrew" stood out to many viewers.

Early voting started Monday in 31 counties, with more counties gradually beginning throughout the week.

During the October 22 CNN debate between the two governor candidates, DeSantis said of Gillum, "Andrew is a failed mayor".

Another email noted that Gillum sent Miller a personal note to thank him for co-sponsoring the food.

Geoff Burgan, a spokesman for the campaign, criticized Kise as one of "Rick Scott's former political hatchet men" who made a decision to "leak more documents about trips and events that have been reported on before".

DeSantis, however, mentioned the Broadway tickets several times during the course of the debate.

Tuesday's release of private emails and text messages by a former friend detailing the mayor's trips to Central America with lobbyists and to NY with federal investigators couldn't have come at a worse time for Gillum.

DeSantis, meanwhile, maintained he was unaware of both the nature of the conferences where he spoke and of his donor's racist remarks.

More than 2 million voters already have cast their ballots in the battleground state of Florida, and so far, Republicans have the edge.

NBC officially cancels ‘Megyn Kelly Today.’ This is who will replace her.
Back then, she took over the " Today " time slot held by Al Roker and Tamron Hall , leading to Hall's sudden exit from NBC.

"When one of the journalists on the panel later brought up the quote and asked about a conference DeSantis attended, the former congressman snapped, 'You gonna play the McCarthyite game?'"

"How the hell am I supposed to know every statement everyone makes?" "I am not gonna bow down to the altar of political correctness". We did go to see "Hamilton.' I did get my ticket to 'Hamilton" from my brother.

Gillum did not take the president's insults lying down, however, and called out Trump for not having the guts to tag him in his latest tweet. "Now, I'm not calling Mr. DeSantis a racist, I'm simply saying the racists believe he's a racist".

"Well, hello there. I is the negro Andrew Gillum and I'll be askin' you to make me governor of this here state of Florida", the voice says. He noted that Tallahassee has the highest murder rate of any city in the state.

DeSantis also accused Gillum of being corrupt for accepting two $1,000 tickets to Hamilton from undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agents. He has denied the remark was a reference to Gillum's race. "I arrived at that theater and received my ticket from my brother".

Gillum, who has been the target of a racist robo-call campaign, was at pains to paint his opponent as a political extremist who panders to xenophobes for support.

Vote-by-mail "returns continue to come in strong with 39.81 percent of requested ballots returned to the supervisor of elections", the chamber report said.

Mexican officials say almost 1,700 people have dropped out of the caravan to apply for asylum in the country.

"That is what corruption is ..."
