Democrats Win Governor's Races in ME and Midwestern States

Democrats Win Governor's Races in ME and Midwestern States

"We could not be prouder of the way that we ran this race".

"I can guarantee you this, I'm not going anywhere", Gillum said. And while Democrats despise the president, Republicans love him.

Nikki Fried, the Democratic candidate for agriculture commissioner, was also likely headed to a hand recount with Republican Matt Caldwell, who she trailed by 0.06 points, a little more than 4,000 votes.

Trump has dubbed the Republican results in the House and Senate a "success".

U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson speaks during a rally for Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum at CFE Arena on the campus of UCF in Orlando, Fla. on November 3.

Abrams could become the first African-American woman governor. He beat Putnam by 20 percentage points.

Scott's campaign has said Nelson should concede the race rather than push for a recount.

"By releasing information for those who completed a provisional ballot, it may be possible to determine how that individual cast their ballot in specific contests, thereby violating both Florida Statutes and the Florida Constitution with their right to cast a secret ballot", Corley wrote.

High profile Democratic heavy hitters including former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden, and Vermont Sen.

In one of the most memorable lines in the debates, Gillum stopped short of calling DeSantis a racist but said "racists believe he is a racist". Basically it's a swing state in a relatively Democratic year with a Democratic incumbent - it all looked like a real advantage for Nelson.




His journey to the Governor's mansion began in 1978. As long as votes are postmarked by Election Day, Nov. 6, they'll be counted.

DeSantis is a former Navy lawyer who served in Iraq and was elected three times to a Jacksonville-area congressional seat before stepping down in September to focus on the governor's race.

In Oklahoma, Republican Kevin Stitt defeated Democrat Drew Edmondson, dashing Democratic hopes that outgoing Republican Governor Mary Fallin's low approval numbers had provided a rare opportunity in a deeply conservative state.

Republicans were eyeing a potential pickup in CT, traditionally a Democratic state, where the contest was too close to call on Wednesday morning.

While Scott maintains he has won the race, the Nelson campaign believes a recount could change the outcome of the race and re-elect Nelson.

In Georgia, critics have drawn attention to Kemp's dual role as a candidate for governor and as supervisor of the state's elections in his capacity as secretary of state.

The Republican Party had no immediate response to the developments, but Mr. Scott's campaign said bluntly that Mr. Elias was launching an effort to steal the election.

Democratic Party officials, who have accused Kemp of trying to suppress the minority vote, quickly denied the charge.
