Ron DeSantis and Andrew Gillum insult each other in final Florida debate

Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum speaks during a campaign rally

The contentious race, in which Gillum is thought to have a slight edge, has been marred by racist overtones as the Democrat seeks to become the first African-American governor in the state's history. "I'm for police accountability, but law enforcement society can not work and, quite frankly, law enforcement can not do its job if it does not have a trusting relationship with the community", Gillum said. DeSantis was probably self-conscious about the fact that he no longer holds public office while Gillum does and was trying not to remind the audience of that by calling him "Mayor".

To believe the worst allegations Florida's gubernatorial candidates hurled at each other during their final debate of the campaign Wednesday, voters have a choice between a liar and a crook. "Andrew couldn't keep Tallahassee safe, he's not the guy to keep Florida families safe". "I'm for police accountability, but law enforcement society can not work and, quite frankly, law enforcement can not do its job if it does not have a trusting relationship with the community", Gillum said.

Gillum was quick to point out DeSantis' apparent tactics.

Gillum said that Florida voters are "sick of racist attacks, we're sick of bigoted attacks, we're sick of divisive language and strategy". It's no surprise that Gillum leads in polls by an average of about six points.

The Florida gubernatorial candidate came under fire this week after it was revealed that he received a ticket to see "Hamilton" on Broadway from an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent posing as a developer. "My opponent, right after he won the Republican nomination for governor, went on Fox News and said to voters here in the state of Florida not to monkey this state by electing me". "I think Gillum's performance was stronger".


Earlier Tuesday, however, Rolling Stone published audio recorded at a ticketed campaign event last Friday suggesting Kemp is at least concerned about Abrams voters turning out en masse.

The candidates also diverged on health care. Gillum said it would only raise taxes on the top 3 percent of the richest corporations and it is only a fraction of the $6.3 billion they received from a tax cut Trump signed into law.

"Some people were paying more for premiums than for rent, so people couldn't afford it. He has not told the truth about that", DeSantis said.

'Andrew supports a single-payer plan which will force people off Medicare, force people off their employer plans and put them on a government-run single-payer plan that is wrong'.
