South Florida pastors denounce DeSantis for his 'monkey this up' remark

PHOENIX AZ- MAY 22 Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio speaks to the media in front of the Arizona State Capitol before filing petitions to run for the U.S. Senate

While Putnam was attending community events with Floridians to discuss issues facing the state, DeSantis reached the more than 4.5 million republican Florida voters on TV, talking about Washington politics, and coming to the defense of the president.

In the Hill.TV interview, Rodgers also emphasized that Fox News quickly distanced itself from DeSantis after the comments.

Gillum upset a field of five that included Graham, a former congresswoman who was hoping to become the state's first female governor and win the office once held by her father, Bob Graham.

But even Fox News, a network which showered DeSantis with favorable coverage, wasn't quite buying it.

On Tuesday, Ron DeSantis was declared the victor in Florida's republican gubernatorial primary, facing off against the state's agriculture commissioner Adam Putnam.

The backlash against DeSantis nearly overshadowed that Trump also took shots at Gillum.

Papadopoulos' attorneys, Thomas Breen and Robert Stanley, have until August 31 to file a sentencing recommendation of their own. Papadopoulos never signed a formal cooperation agreement, and no promise was made to recommend a break on a sentencing.

His next three wickets came in the space of three balls across the 31st and 33rd over, during which he was on a hattrick as well. However, Virat Kohli on Saturday missed out on a well-deserved Test century by a whisker as his 97 came off 152 balls.

"It has zero to do with race", DeSantis said. And Republicans also argue that Gillum is simply too liberal, with his advocacy for universal health care and scrapping the current iteration of the ICE immigration enforcement agency. He entered the governor's race a month after Trump's December tweet that he would make "a GREAT governor".

Gillum, meanwhile, relied on a grassroots campaign in the big-money Democratic primary.

The Tallahassee mayor's Twitter followers have more than quintupled in the 36 hours since he won the Democratic nomination Tuesday night. He's a gifted public speaker who did well in debates, often receiving the most applause, but the FBI is investigating Tallahassee city hall for alleged corruption.

"We're going to be wildly successful at getting more black voters, brown voters, young voters, poor voters, working class white voters to get out and vote for us", Gillum said.

Their policy differences are pronounced: DeSantis is pro-gun, and anti-tax; Gillum boasts about beating gun rights groups in a lawsuit and is calling for an increase in corporate taxes. And it's a contrast to the staid, centrist Nelson and Gwen Graham, Gillum's top primary rival.

Florida's race for Governor Rick Scott's seat has been framed as a referendum on Trumpism versus progressivism-with DeSantis representing the former, and Gillum the latter.
