Newspaper front pages across Florida chronicle the historic midterm election

Newspaper front pages across Florida chronicle the historic midterm election

DeSantis told reporters that he is entering election day "roughly at parity" with Democrat Andrew Gillum after the early voting period, which gave the Democrats a slight edge based on calculations through Monday.

New statistics released Tuesday by the state Division of Elections show that more than 2.7 million people voted early, and almost 2.5 million people have voted by mail.

But Republican Mike DeWine defeated Democrat Richard Cordray in OH, one of the highest-profile governor's races, according to an NBC News projection.

Accusations of race-baiting dogged Kemp, 55, and DeSantis, 40, who denied the allegations.

The gubernatorial race is arguably a bigger deal. "We could not be prouder of the way we ran this race", a tearful Gillum told supporters.

The "Hello" singer has never made a secret of being a Spice Girls superfan, and her epic throwback merely cemented her claims. Emma said they would be "celebrating for the women who were around when we came out.it's going to be very special".

"You should have a governor who can work constructively with the administration in Washington to make sure Florida is getting what it needs", DeSantis said. "I'm simply saying the racists believe he's a racist".

This has been considered one of the most controversial elections after the passing an "exact match" policy, which requires voter details to match information on the state's database. FiveThirtyEight predictions had showed Gillum 4.2 percent ahead of DeSantis on Election Day. He had a race of his own for one of Florida's two seats in the U.S. Senate, challenging sitting Sen. For the son of a construction worker and a school bus driver, it's a classic tale of the American dream, and a new chapter in Gillum's ambitious political career (he became the youngest person elected to Tallahassee's City Commission when he was just 23-years-old). In a Fox News interview the morning after he won the GOP nomination, DeSantis said Gillum's proposals would harm the state's economy and he urged Florida voters not to "monkey this up" by electing Gillum.

It was Trump's support, including a July endorsement rally in Tampa, that helped propel DeSantis past a better-funded and more widely known opponent, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, in the August 28 Republican primary. The president himself held two campaign rallies in support of DeSantis in the last week, including a Saturday night event in Pensacola.

"My most significant and valued supporter is standing right next to me, despite what the media might say", DeSantis said of his wife Casey.
