Florida election results: Governor and Senate races close after big turnout

Jewish voters hear last-minute warning about Gillum

Democrats picked up governorships in Kansas and at least three other USA states on Tuesday but failed to win high-profile races in Florida and OH, as voters cast ballots in three dozen gubernatorial contests across the country. Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania - where Democratic incumbent Tom Wolf easily won re-election on Tuesday - are typically Democratic states that swung to Trump in 2016, handing him the presidency. In 2014, Republicans edged Democrats in votes cast before Election Day, while Democrats led two years ago in the presidential election.

DeSantis addressed his supporters in Orlando on Tuesday night.

The hotly contested race in Georgia, where Democrat Stacey Abrams was seeking to become the first black woman to be elected governor of a USA state, remained too close to call early on Wednesday. He conceded to DeSantis, who has been an outspoken supporter of President Trump, saying he still "believes in the long run, good always wins over evil".

Trump's endorsement of DeSantis skyrocketed him to victory in the primary. "Republicans had a very strong candidate Adam Putnam, who is in the primary against DeSantis..."

"He wants a 40 percent tax increase", said DeSantis.

DeSantis also invariably contended that Florida would be less safe under Gillum, because of Gillum's positions on immigration and policing, as well as by repeating Tallahassee has the highest crime rate in the state.

Lion Air plane emergency signal day before fatal crash
In December 2014, an AirAsia flight from Surabaya to Singapore plunged into the sea, killing all 162 on board. It has been expanding aggressively in Southeast Asia, a fast-growing region of more than 600 million people.

These constant refrains prompted criticism that DeSantis' campaign was too negative, so much so that his campaign privately tried to remind DeSantis to speak about his own positive attributes before he started attacking Gillum on the stump. Gillum, the current mayor of Tallahassee, has 50 percent of support among likely voters, versus 46 percent for his GOP rival.

Gillum's message is resonating with his base. "So it does not surprise me that Gillum would be supporting Dream Defenders".

But he stumbled early when he warned electing Mr Gillum would "monkey this up". Hayes did not issue a correction on his popular Twitter feed, which has more than 1.75 million followers, nor was there a correction issued on his show's Twitter page.

Republicans also scored a major victory in OH, where Mike DeWine, the state attorney general, defeated Democrat Richard Cordray, who served as the first director of the US Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. We recognize that you know we didn't win it tonight.

Pinder's mother Phillis, who accompanied the Liberty City resident and his young son to the polls, added, "We have a president who doesn't get his information correct - he says things that just are not true - and he speaks so cruelly".
