But in polls over the past two months, DeSantis began to pull away from Putnam with the help of a strong endorsement from President Donald Trump, who rallied for him in Florida this month.

"Such a fantastic win for Ron DeSantis and the people of the Great State of Florida". "I'm trying to make Florida even better, he's trying to make Florida Venezuela".

Sanders tweeted his congratulations, saying, "Tonight, Floridians joined Andrew in standing up and demanding real change and showed our nation what is possible when we stand together".

Gillum, 39, was a favorite among Democrats who call themselves progressives and earned the endorsement of former Vermont Sen.

Sanders initially endorsed Gillum on August 1 and campaigned for him at a rally in the state earlier this month.

Like Sanders, Gillum has kept his criticism of President Donald Trump at a relative low boil, instead focusing - while urging others to follow suit - on issues that could bring new voters out to the polls. Gillum has said he is not a target in the investigation.

DeSantis was one of several Republicans running in contests Tuesday in Florida and Arizona who hoped that cozying up to the president would be rewarded by voters.

In an indicator of potential turnout rates in the general, early turnout in Florida eclipsed almost 2 million votes before polls opened Tuesday, according to Florida Division of Elections.

Gillum spent the least of the five major candidates in his primary race and had the smallest television presence.

In November, Florida might have the highest turnout in a midterm election since the 1950s, according to McDonald.

Murphy, who unseated GOP incumbent John Mica in 2016, easily defeated a primary challenge in the 7th District from Chardo Richardson, who was backed by NY democratic socialist candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Current Republican Gov. Rick Scott easily defeated a nominal challenger to win the GOP nomination.

"What has made Andrew's campaign so powerful is that he's not just working hard to win an election, he has laid out a vision for a new course for the state of Florida and our country".

"This is our moment", Gillum asserted Tuesday night.
