Gillum's Twitter followers spike after primary victory, clash with Trump

In nearly every way Gillum - the Democratic nominee for governor - and DeSantis - the GOP nominee for governor - are at opposite ends of the political spectrum. "That's not going to be good for Florida".

DeSantis and Gillum will face off in the November 6 general election to replace Gov. Rick Scott, who is running for U.S. Senate.

Accusations of racism flared up on Wednesday in the Florida governor's race after the Republican candidate told voters they would "monkey this up" if they chose a liberal African-American Democrat backed by Senator Bernie Sanders.

This victory was short-lived, however, as the very next morning DeSantis' campaign erupted in controversy over an ill-fated Fox News interview. DeSantis wants to make that system even crueler to the needy, poor, and working class. But you'll rarely see similar appraisals of DeSantis' ideas, which is a shame, because his platform - supporting harsh and racist policing, anti-immigrant bile, and carbon-burning businesses, along with absolute fealty to Donald Trump - represents the absurd end of the far-right spectrum. He entered the governor's race a month after Trump's December tweet that he would make "a GREAT governor".
