Florida’s Governor Race Results

The Florida Governor Primaries Tuesday night was an intense race that ended in unexpected results some might say. The winning candidates are Andre Gillum, Democrat, and Ron Desantis, Republican. Well there you have your candidates, so do your research and see who really exemplifies the values you want for the State of Florida.

Now heading to November’s election who do you think will be Florida’s next Governor?  “The last thing we need to do is to monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases and bankrupting the state,” Desantis warned this morning on Fox News. “That’s not going to work, that’s not going to be good for Florida.” His reference was made towards his opponent Gillum. To say the least, “monkey this up” is not a term a white man should be using when referring to a black man. Desantis is already receiving backlash for this statement. It goes to show, choose your words carefully candidates your mouth might be your downfall. Some conservative advice “Those who guard their mouths and their tongues keep themselves from calamity” (Proverbs 21.23).

Imagine, if Gillum wins, this could be one for the history books if the first African American Governor of Florida is elected; or will the Republicans keep this seat? We will find out in about two months. On the other hand, Rick Scott, Florida’s current Governor, is moving on to running for Senator and has already won the primaries. The road to the November elections continues.

When the time comes, go out and vote! Exercising your civic right is important and you can’t complain about the results if you don’t go out and do your part. Let your voice be heard. Be a force of good and don’t be afraid of change.
