I’m not sure what state he is referring to when talking about voter suppression, because the state he ran in provided 30 days worth of voting opportunities in addition to Election Day. This “suppression” = the second highest turnout for a midterm in Florida since the mid 50’s. 🤷🏼♂️ https://t.co/HLTWuUBezf

Florida Official Overseeing Vote Count Destroyed Ballots, Accused of Not Removing Dead Voters from Rolls
The Florida official put in charge of counting votes in Broward County — the most liberal county in the state — for the gubernatorial and Senate race previously destroyed voter ballots, a judge ruled, and was most recently accused of not removing dead voters from the voter rolls.
Broward County Board of Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes is in charge of vote counting in the area and has yet to disclose how many ballots are still not counted despite the election for governor and Senate occurring two days ago.
Currently, in the Senate race, Republican Rick Scott is leading Democrat incumbent Bill Nelson by more than 20,000 votes. Nelson is hoping for a blowout in Broward County to push him over the edge for re-election.
Snipes was confronted by local media about why the vote count in Broward County has taken so long.

This would not be good:But remember, this does not have to happen. You can help keep the gains of the last two years from being reversed by the Democrats (AKA Progressives, AKA Socialists), the prosperity, the low unemployment, the conservative Supreme Court justices, the reductions in bureaucratic regulations, the strong economic growth. Here’s a list of 52 Trump accomplishments. If you haven’t already voted, get out there and vote. And whether you have or not, talk to your friends, neighbors and relatives and let them know how important it is to vote to keep this train on the right track – LIBERTY AND PROSPERITY.
And when you hear people saying that the Democrats are going to win the mid-terms, whether it be in the media (print, radio or TV), in live conversations or in the pundit polls, just remember how wrong those polls were in 2016:

And when confronted with anything against him, Andrew will ALWAYS play the race card.
It’s his modus operandi.
According to a story reported in the Tampa Bay Times Tuesday afternoon, Andrew’s former college buddy, campaign treasurer and former Tallahassee lobbyist Adam Corey revealed the Broadway tickets to “Hamilton” were a “gift,” a/k/a bribe, from an FBI undercover agent:“The text messages show that, contrary to what his campaign has said, Gillum knew the tickets came from ‘Mike Miller,’ who was an FBI agent posing as a developer looking into city corruption.”
“‘Mike Miller and the crew have tickets for us to ‘Hamilton’ tonight at 8 p.m.,’ Corey texted Gillum on August 10, 2016.”
“‘Awesome news about ‘Hamilton,’ Gillum replied, according to the records. The texts appear to refute what Gillum’s campaign said just days after his unlikely win in the Democratic primary for Florida governor.”
The newspaper story goes on to recite what happened in the national television debate: “During Sunday’s debate, DeSantis asked Gillum about the tickets. ‘Did you pay for the Hamilton tickets?’ DeSantis asked. Gillum avoided directly answering the question.”
The cheapest tickets for Hamilton are $452 and can go up to $1,399, depending on where you sit.
By the way Andrew, where did you sit?
And then Andrew played the well-worn race card.
In the Tallahassee Democrat Tuesday morning, Andrew responds “… that at every turn, I was paying my own way or was with my family, for all trips, including picking up tickets from my brother Marcus … but this isn’t about a Broadway show. … The goal is obviously to use my candidacy as a way to reinforce, frankly, stereotypes about black men, Gillum said.”
What stereotypes about black men, Andrew?
No one is suggesting anything about black men, we’re suggesting you are a liar and a crook. It’s about you, not your race. You just happen to be black.
But, Andrew can’t help himself, because if he can convince the mainstream media he’s being victimized because of his race, then he can obfuscate about the truth. Read the rest of this article at sunshinestatenewss.com.

This video exposes Comrade Andrew Gillum’s past, radical views towards law enforcement officers in such a way that make it impossible for clear-thinking people to want Gillum as the next Governor of Florida. pic.twitter.com/0rhJuUadcN

Back in August, Tallahassee’s Mayor Andrew Gillum did something that seems rather easy to do in Florida: he shocked the political establishment and the pundit-class by upsetting the anointed Democratic front-runner. Now, as the Democrats’ unlikely nominee for Governor, Gillum is doubling down on his support to a radical, anti-police manifesto that calls for defunding police and releasing tens-of-thousands of criminals.
Dream Defenders is a group started after the Travon Martin shooting by an anti-America extremist. The group is now funded by George Soros and is recruiting and supporting wannabe-Socialist politicians like Gillum. The founder’s Twitter is peppered with statements like, “F— the police,” “F— the police until those cowards kill me,” and “I hope that I never have a buddy that becomes a Police Officer. I’ve realized I have a deep hate for all of them.”
And, this manifesto that Gillum pledged his allegiance to isn’t any more grounded than the tweets from the founder. It reads, “Police were never meant to protect and serve me and you … Police and prisons have no place in ‘justice’ … Police and prisons aren’t just racist, but they work to enforce the separations of rich and poor.” Read the reat of this article at floridapolitics.com.

A huge “Bru Ha Ha” here, but not even a whimper when The Almighty Barack Obama said this in 2008. A double standard ya’ think?
— The Hill (@thehill) August 29, 2018
by Robert Kraychick
Barack Obama warned supporters that politicians had “monkeyed around” with elections, during a campaign speech at Kent State University in New Philadelphia, Ohio, on September 3, 2008.
Then-Senator Obama (D-IL) said (0:29 in the video below): “I come from Chicago. It’s not as if it’s just Republicans who have monkeyed around with elections in the past. Sometimes Democrats have, too. You know, whenever people are in power, they have this tendency to try to tilt things in their direction.”
Obama called for establishing a “voting rights division” within the Department of Justice (DOJ) to combat “voter fraud” and what he said were efforts to “discourage people to vote.”
On Wednesday, Florida Republican gubernatorial nominee Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) advised Floridians not to “monkey this up” by selecting a “socialist agenda” via a Democrat governor.
News media outlets such as The Hill and CNN framed the comment as racial, given that DeSantis’s Democrat opponent, Andrew Gillum, is black. Read the rest of this article at breitbart.com.

JACKSONVILLE, Florida – With just over a month to go until Florida Republicans vote to select their nominee for the governor’s race, Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) is pulling ahead of Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, according to recent polling data.
This month’s polling, however, shows the trend is decidedly in DeSantis’ favor. A survey from Remington Research conducted July 2-5 has DeSantis up 17 points. Another survey conducted by pollster Tony Fabrizio has DeSantis up 12 points.
According to the Real Clear Politics polling average, which includes the Fox News poll showing Putnam with a double-digit lead, DeSantis has a 2.7 percent edge over Putnam as it stands now.
At a campaign meet-and-greet–with a visibly pro-Donald Trump vibe–just south of downtown Jacksonville on Saturday morning, DeSantis offered Breitbart News his reasons for the surge.
“I think it’s a number of things,” he said. “I think it’s a strong contrast between me and my opponent. Adam Putnam is a career politician. He’s been in office since he was 22, and he’s been an insider transactional Republican. I’m somebody who is an Iraq veteran, a military officer – somebody who has really fought entrenched interests and has stood on principle. Those records are clear.”
“He was somebody that was very hostile to Trump down the stretch against Hillary Clinton, and if he had his way, Hillary would have won,” DeSantis added. “I’m somebody that’s been endorsed by the president, so it’s a big contrast.”
Trump has voiced his support for DeSantis on two occasions and going back as far as last December. Read the rest of this article HERE.

TALLAHASSEE, Florida – Florida Agricultural Commissioner Adam Putnam’s allies might have attacked front-runner Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) as being out of touch with President Donald Trump, but DeSantis’ campaign has responded with a Trump-style attack to counter those claims.
One of the Florida gubernatorial primary race’s early controversies involves an onslaught of negative, and according to the DeSantis campaign, “defamatory” ads from the National Liberty Federation (NLF), a 501(c)(4) social welfare nonprofit that is not required to disclose its donors.
The ads claimed DeSantis was out of step with President Donald Trump and “voted to give food stamps to people who were in the United States illegally.” The ad further claimed DeSantis “has taken hundreds of thousands from Wall Street, defense contractors and wealthy lawyers.” Continue reading at breitbart.com.
