Gillum has insisted the Federal Bureau of Investigation has told him he is not a subject of the agency's probe into Tallahassee City Hall.
Although if he is saying that, he's destined to have an interesting relationship with Florida law enforcement as governor.
With the ripples potentially so far reaching, Gillum and DeSantis have both attracted the support of billionaires from outside Florida, including Soros and Steyer, who have spent millions backing Gillum, and Illinois Republicans Richard Uihlein and Kenneth C. Griffin, DeSantis backers who collectively have matched them dollar for dollar - and then some. "More will come out".
In noting that turnout for the November 6 election has already topped 15 percent, the Florida Chamber of Commerce posted in a daily report that black voters account for about 9 percent of the people who have cast ballots.
The jabs flew from there, with DeSantis calling Gillum a career politician who distorted the truth about apparently accepting improper gifts from a lobbyist friend and businessmen who were actually undercover FBI agents investigating Tallahassee's community redevelopment agency.
He released receipts and bank statements last month that proved he paid at least some of his own way. "After the trip, Mayor Gillum learned Marcus Gillum had obtained that ticket in a swap with Adam Corey for a concert ticket."In a statement on Tuesday, Mr. Gillum said any suggestion that he had acted improperly was a political "sideshow" and rejected the idea that the newly released text messages signaled anything improper".
However, the Florida Commission on Ethics is, in an unrelated investigation, examining records about two trips Gillum took in 2016.
Merkel to give up Germany CDU chair after 18 years - party source
Merkel's ruling coalition "has lost the confidence of the electorate", said Josef Joffe, publisher-editor of weekly Die Zeit. Germany's other leader CDU chancellors - Konrad Adenauer and Helmut Kohl - both had messy ends to their time in office.
Arrest in bomb scare file
Other packages sent to prominent Democrats on Wednesday also listed a return address for Wasserman Schultz's South Florida office. He said investigators were able to trace Sayoc after finding a fingerprint on an envelope containing a bomb sent to Rep.
Saudi Arabia rejects Turkey call to extradite Khashoggi killers
Turkish prosecutors seeking the extradition accuse the 18 of "murder by premeditation, monstrous intent or by torture". I think people have assigned blame on Saudi Arabia with such certainty before the investigation is complete.
In fact, the text messages show, Gillum was aware that it was a contractor who provided the tickets.
Also unaddressed are text messages involving possible arrangements for a hotel room in NY and discussion of the possibility of going to Las Vegas.
At the forum at TKAE, Gillum described himself as a "deep and unapologetic friend" to the State of Israel and recalled the trips that he has taken to Israel as part of the sister city program between Tallahassee and Ramat HaSharon. "He said I'm a grown man, I pay for my stuff", DeSantis said.
"We did go to see Hamilton". The campaign subsequently released receipts from the NY trip, but said that no receipt for "Hamilton" was included because the mayor had thought the ticket originated with his brother.ImageMr.
"At the time we believed that they were reserved by friends of Adam's, Mike Miller. I'm a hard-working person, I know that may not fit your description of what you think people like me do, but I've worked hard for everything that I've gotten in my life". "But you know had the situation been reversed I never would have ever reduced myself to referring to him in such familiar terms". "Some people lost access", DeSantis said.
Gillum leads DeSantis 52 to 46 per cent, according to the latest polls, but that gap has been narrowing as the campaign has drawn on. On Thursday, Jackson said he had asked the ethics commission to include the Tampa trip in his complaint.
All in all, the differences between the way Gillum and DeSantis have raised funds is reflective of their campaign styles in the "era of big donors", said Susan McManus, a political science professor at the University of South Florida.
The story is nearly certain to live on.
