US primary elections seen as key tests for 'Trump effect'

Andrew Gillum supporters Richard Lopez and Mara Cooper watch the screen as election results come in showing their candidate winning the Democratic primary for governor on Tuesday Aug. 28 2018 in Tallahassee Fla

He was responding to the U.S. president's tweet praising Gillum's freshly minted Republican opponent and blasting the Democrat as "a failed Socialist Mayor... who has allowed crime & many other problems to flourish in his city".

Trump posted on Twitter a full-throttled endorsement for her candidacy on Wednesday morning and claimed sweeping wins for his "Make America Great Again" agenda.

Gillum's surprise victory for the Democratic nomination for governor of Florida sets up a race between a young, black progressive with an aspirational working-class message and DeSantis, a Republican who has staked his political career on his ties to President Trump.

The governor's race will probably become a referendum on Trump. "It has everything to do with whether we want Florida to go in a good direction".

'No reason' for Korea war games right now
In the wake of the cancelled trip, state media accused the USA of "double dealing" and "hatching a criminal plot". You can see this disconnect in how serious each side is taking the peace negotiations with North Korea.

In an interview with Fox News correspondent Sandra Smith, DeSantis shared his thoughts on Gillum, referring to him as an "articulate spokesman for far left views".

He also said he has no intention of attacking DeSantis personally. Gillum called them "beneath the intelligence of Floridians". In the Florida win, Dinkins saw an indication that another WFP-backed candidate, Cynthia Nixon, can upset New York Governor Andrew Cuomo in that state's September 13 Democratic primary. Despite a recent decrease, Leon county's crime rate alluded to by Trump is still the highest in the state.

DeSantis, who turns 40 next month, is a former Navy lawyer who won his seat in 2012 running as a Washington outsider.

Sinema's and McSally's Senate runs also have created House openings in Arizona, a fast-growing and increasingly diverse state where Democrats are eager to gain a foothold.

Interested in Royal Family? Prince Harry noticed that his beloved is not enough four-legged friend and gave her a puppy Labrador. Markle was able to bring her beagle, Guy , and he reportedly had a blast at the couple's wedding reception in May.

While Trump held off endorsing any of the three Republicans in a contentious U.S. Senate battle in Arizona, the candidates all spent the final stretch of the campaign touting their allegiance to him. Former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine was second, with 28 percent. If elected, Gillum would be Florida's first black governor. Marco Rubio shut down his presidential campaign and chose to run for re-election. But he had prominent elected officials - including Congressman Alcee Hastings, Miramar Mayor Wayne Messam and state Rep. Shevrin Jones, D-West Park, strongly advocating on his behalf. He's a gifted public speaker who did well in debates, often receiving the most applause, but the FBI is investigating Tallahassee city hall for alleged corruption. Gillum has said he is not a target in the investigation. Gillum ran on several progressive policies, including gun reform, LGBTQ rights and universal healthcare. In the state's 9th Congressional District, Steve Ferrara, the former Navy chief medical officer, won the GOP nomination to face Greg Stanton, Phoenix's Democratic former mayor. Bill Nelson. Scott had an easy win in Tuesday's GOP primary, and now he heads into an increasingly bitter - and expensive - showdown with Nelson that could play a decisive role in which party controls the Senate.

"I have been really slow to try to think on it because it's too big, " he said.

"That part was not lost on me". The front page of his campaign's website was festooned with multiple images of Trump-as was his final campaign ad.
