Gillum, DeSantis cast votes in Florida's midterm election

  • Donald Trump speaks during a campaign rally in Estero Florida

Former US president Barack Obama warned on Friday against rhetoric he said was meant to sow fear as he campaigned in support of Democratic candidates while president Donald Trump hammered a hardline anti-immigration message to energise Republicans. In Florida's statewide races, that could be an even better thing for Democratic gubernatorial candidate and Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who's facing off against Republican U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, and incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen.

In his final push in the campaign for governor, former Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis told supporters on Monday that he can win the race if the GOP dominates election-day voting.

With just three days to go before the midterm elections, it's a tale of dueling presidents on the campaign trail. Obviously, we do not yet have any vote totals here, the night before the election.

'If you don't like what's going on right now, don't just complain, ' Obama said.

Speaking before a fired-up crowd on behalf of Andrew Gillum and Bill Nelson, Democrats running for governor and the Senate, respectively, Obama charged that Trump and other Republicans weren't running on their record but were trying to scare people. So he's not gonna work for people who had it handed to them.

Obama warned voters not to get bamboozled by misinformation while Republicans allow polluters to poison the environment, give tax cuts to billionaires and take health care away from millions.

Obama urged more decisive action by Americans who have grown frustrated by the first 21 months of Trump's presidency. Quite frankly I think they underestimate the people of the state of Florida. Bill Nelson (D) nodded at this from their seats behind the former president.

Trump, who is repeatedly called out for an unprecedented number of falsehoods and misleading statements, accused Obama of being dishonest. Claire McCaskill wants voters to know she's "100 percent" supportive of Trump's efforts to crack down on a migrant caravan making its way to the US from Central America, ostensibly to apply for asylum.

"Division of Elections staff is communicating with each county supervisor of elections throughout the day, and we stand ready to provide any needed assistance", Detzner said in a statement. "If he can't keep the city of Tallahassee safe, he can't keep the citizens of the state of Florida safe".
