"He said I'm a grown man, I pay for my stuff", DeSantis said.

Details of the investigation are not yet public but a series of subpoenas issued in 2017 did not name Gillum or implicate him in any crime.

Gillum is running against Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis (Fla.) for the governor's seat, a vacancy that will be left by GOP Gov. Rick Scott.

"I go by our polling, our targeting, and everything is going in a good direction", he said. In 2013, Gillum participated in a vote to provide more than $2.1 million in city money to renovate a restaurant project co-owned by Corey. The text messages show he knew it came from Mike Miller, who he didn't know was an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent at the time. "Mike Miller and the crew have tickets for us for Hamilton tonight at 8 p.m". DeSantis went after Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, Fla., for lying about receiving a ticket to the musical, "Hamilton", from an undercover FBI agent investigating his office for corruption.

Democratic Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum on Monday hit back hard at President Donald Trump after the president accused him of being a "thief" on Twitter.

Polls show that Democrat Andrew Gillum has regularly maintained a lead over Trump-endorsed rival Ron DeSantis in the race to become Florida's next governor - and President Donald Trump is now reportedly anxious.

Justin Schmidt of Davie, a Gillum supporter who attended the forum at TKAE, feels that the Democratic candidate would be a strong supporter for the State of Israel if elected governor. I'm saying the racists believe he's a racist'.

Corey (the lobbyist): "That would be epic!" Gillum previously claimed that he received the gift from his brother. "I arrived at the theater and received my ticket from my brother", Gillum said.

The right-hander also pitched well in Game 7 of the NL Championship Series against Milwaukee. Meanwhile, the Dodgers are counting on Walker Buehler to yank them out of the 2-0 deficit.

"I did go and see Hamilton", said Gillum. "I will get all the rooms booked".

"Now, I'm not calling Mr. DeSantis a racist", Gillum said, "I'm simply saying the racists believe he's a racist".

Blistering verbal assaults overtook the race for Florida governor Wednesday night, as rivals Andrew Gillum and Ron DeSantis presented voters with an onslaught of character insults in their final debate before the November election. Then, paraphrasing Jay-Z, Gillum tried to turn the debate to policy issues: "We got 99 issues, and Hamilton ain't one of them". The campaign said the villa cost about $1,400 a night, split among about a dozen people.Email records released by Mr. Corey's lawyer on Tuesday show that the Gillums' share owed to Mr. Corey was much more than $400. "But you know had the situation been reversed I never would have ever reduced myself to referring to him in such familiar terms".

Gillum leads DeSantis 52 to 46 per cent, according to the latest polls, but that gap has been narrowing as the campaign has drawn on. He said he envisions a state of Florida where anti-BDS legislation is enforced, where support for funding security in Jewish day schools continues and where people speak up and speak out against anti-Semitism in the communities, college campus and high schools.

Lonzo Ball scored 12 points with eight assists for the Lakers, while Josh Hart added 12 points in his second start of the season. Rondo's three-game suspension is now complete, while Ingram has one more game remaining on his four-game suspension.

All in all, the differences between the way Gillum and DeSantis have raised funds is reflective of their campaign styles in the "era of big donors", said Susan McManus, a political science professor at the University of South Florida.
