"I go by our polling, our targeting, and everything is going in a good direction", he said. "By the very trust that they inspire in community and in society, they are supposed to be able to bring most situations to heel".
He went on to explain that while he is in favor of law enforcement authorities "repairing the breach" between officers and citizens, he believes that pulling a weapon against a possible suspect is simply going too far. "No", he said. "I'm for police accountability, but law enforcement society can not work, and, quite frankly, law enforcement can not do its job if it does not have a trusting relationship with the community". "Just hissing at me to call him out", he said. First of all, he's got neo-Nazis helping him out in this state.
"It is the first piece of evidence linking the ongoing Federal Bureau of Investigation probe to Gillum's campaign for governor", the Tallahassee Democrat reported.
After stumping earlier in the morning in Green Cove Springs, the Tallahassee mayor who, if elected, would become the Florida's first black governor, told his supporters in St. Augustine: "If we all do our job, I believe we're going to flip the switch to blue, and then flip the nation blue".
"I arrived at the theater and received the ticket from my brother", Gillum said during the debate. "Given that Democrat and non-party affiliate returns are coming in above baseline of 2014 and Republicans just at baseline of 2014, it seems very likely we could have return rates for (vote-by-mail) approaching 65 percent - meaning there could be 2.4 million ballots mailed in by election day, a record for a gubernatorial election".
The implication is clear: It's a racial slight, as apparently all forms of political antagonism towards Gillum are.
After the clip of Gillum's precision takedown on Wednesday began to circulate on Twitter, DeSantis was widely ridiculed.
Twins Hire Rays Assistant Coach Rocco Baldelli As Manager
The team's previous manager, Paul Molitor, was sacked in early October after the Twins finished with a disappointing 78-84 record. The Minnesota Twins are bringing on Rocco Baldelli as the team's new manager, the team announced Thursday morning.
"Mr. DeSantis has spoken".
It's unknown if these new revelations will have an impact on the Governor's race. So aides fear that a loss could undermine their efforts to capture the state's all-important 29 electoral votes in 2020.
Also in attendance at Sunday's rally were local Democratic leaders and candidates in the November election, including Nancy Soderberg, running for U.S. Congress in Florida's 6th district; Ges Selmont, seeking to represent the 4th U.S. Congressional District; and Jamie Perkins, challenging incumbent Cyndi Stevenson for the 17th district of the state House of Representatives.
"The mayor was invited by Peter Leach to a meeting at his office to learn about some of the work he was doing to advance wrap-around social services in schools and housing developments", Gillum's chief of staff, Jamie Van Pelt, told the Tallahassee Democrat a year ago.
People close to Trump told Politico that they are concerned about Republicans' prospects in the state, primarily the governor's race.
Gillum, 39, quickly turned the question on his competitor, assigning blame to the "collapsing of our political discourse" under President Donald Trump, an enthusiastic DeSantis supporter.
As is the case in most government stings, the waters are muddied so thoroughly it becomes hard for the electorate to find enough truth to know where to cast a vote. And that thread might fray if Gillum himself ends up the VP nominee, with Democrats counting on him to deliver his home state.
