Final farewells to Sen. John McCain begin at Arizona Capitol

Final farewells to Sen. John McCain begin at Arizona Capitol

Several advocacy groups for working class Floridians, veterans, immigrants, and the environment rallied Thursday at Tampa's Lykes Gaslight Park to protest Republican candidate for governor Ron DeSantis' conservative policies.

When asked if DeSantis was using a racial dog whistle, Gillum told multiple interviewers this week that he felt DeSantis was using a racial "bullhorn".

Terrie Rizzo, the head of the Florida Democratic Party, tweeted about DeSantis' comments Wednesday.

Businessman Kevin Stitt won the Republican nomination for governor in Oklahoma in a primary runoff race against the former Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett.

White said DeSantis is not a good choice for Florida governor because the state has had single party rule for over two decades. But he said that he would hurt the state if elected.

"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", said DeSantis.

The DeSantis campaign also denounced the racist robocalls mocking his opponent in a statement obtained by Politico on Friday.

But the risk for DeSantis is that Trump is a polarizing figure, meaning the president's support for the GOP candidate might also energize Gillum's supporters.

Gillum said, "DeSantis can do the bidding of big business and big lobbyists and Donald Trump and his divisive rhetoric". "Andrew says 'No, this is what I believe in and I'm going to say it'".

Trump cancels pay raise due federal workers in January
The pay raise matter was the latest in a string of moves that reflect an attempt to rein in spending on federal employees. Trump also stated the pay increase would amount to over $25 billion, which he called "inappropriate".

Those who wish to give a final farewell to Sen. Trump has not endorsed in the race, but he has had praise for McSally. Loves our Military and our Vets.

The former Air Force combat pilot defeated former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and fellow immigration hard-liner Kelli Ward. Hillary Clinton won the district in 2016, giving a strong start to either former Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick or 2016 nominee Matt Heinz, who are locked in a tight race for the nomination. Gillum is mayor of the city of Tallahassee and Trump said Gillum has "allowed crime and many other problems to flourish in the city".

Congresswoman Martha McSally has won the Republican primary for Arizona's open U.S. Senate seat. Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce President Lea Marquez Peterson looks like the favorite for the GOP nomination, but this will be a hard seat for Republicans to hold.

They all ran towards President Donald Trump, in a sign of his hold over Republican voters.

The district covers the southeastern corner of Arizona from most of Tucson down to the U.S-Mexico border. Democrats hope to flip the seat in their bid to take control of the House of Representatives.

In the heavily Republican 5th Congressional District, Rep. Andy Biggs had no primary opponent, and will face Democrat Joan Greene in November. Democrat David Garcia, an Arizona State University professor, is focusing on his experience in the area, but he faces tough challengers from State Sen.

Those primary races Tuesday set up a fierce fall showdown in the nation's largest political battleground. The other is the race for the seat being vacated by Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, who won the Democratic Senate primary.

The Arizona contest to replace the retiring Jeff Flake is considered one of the two top takeover opportunities for Democrats, along with Nevada, and could be critical to the balance of power in the Senate in November.

Oklahoma is also holding a runoff election to determine who will be the Republican gubernatorial nominee. Cornett is running on his government experience, while Stitt has campaigned as the outsider, self-funding his campaign and hitting Cornett for not supporting Trump enough.
