DeSantis Defeats Gillum in Florida Governor’s Race

Mairead McArdle, National Review

DeSantis, 40, can often be found on television defending Trump and gambled heavily on their close association during his campaign. Two of Trump’s eleven rallies in the past week leading up to Election Day were in Florida stumping for DeSantis and Republican Senate candidate Rick Scott, Florida’s sitting governor. “In Ron’s case, he’s going against somebody that’s got a lot of energy but he runs one of the worst, one of the biggest problem cities anywhere in the country,” Trump said of Gillum’s record as Tallahassee mayor at Saturday’s rally in Pensacola, Fla. “He’s not doing the job. You don’t want to have him running Florida.”
