Andrew Gillum was fantastic and he won the debate last night!

According to Rolling Stone Magazine : Despite Trumpís Wishful Thinking, Andrew Gillum Won the Florida Debate

Trump acolyte Ron DeSantis appeared shell-shocked in the first Florida gubernatorial showdown Sunday night.

The race to become the next governor of Florida is among the most heated contests of the upcoming midterms. It may also be the most emblematic of the national political climate in 2018. Democrat Andrew Gillum is an unabashed progressive, supporting universal healthcare, higher corporate taxes and abolishing ICE ďin its current form.Ē Republican Ron DeSantis has built his entire campaign around his allegiance to President Trump, right down to the xenophobia. On Sunday night, they debated for the first time, and as expected, it was pretty contentious. Gillum, the current mayor of Tallahassee, and DeSantis, a former three-term congressman, sparred over everything from climate change to gun control to how the presidentís rhetoric is affecting children. Trump deemed DeSantis the winner shortly after the debate concluded.Trumpís tweet followed the proud tradition of being literally the opposite of truthful. From beginning to end, Gillum was calm, collected and specific in his responses while DeSantis was as fidgety, evasive and generally unsure of how to present himself, both physically behind the podium and in his responses. snip

Judging by their debate performances on Sunday night, it wasnít hard to understand why Floridians seem to prefer Gillum.
