Gillum tells opponent to focus on issues, not insults

Gillum tells opponent to focus on issues, not insults

The phone recording features a man pretending to be Gillum speaking in an exaggerated black minstrel-style accent as by jungle noises play in the background.

This week, following Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum's victory as the Democratic Candidate for Florida's Governor in the Florida primaries, a robocall went out to Florida residents targeting Gillum.

It was not clear how many Florida voters received the robocalls on Friday.

Andrew Gillum made history as the first African American to win a major-party nomination for governor in Florida.

Papadopoulos: Trump 'nodded' at suggestion of Putin meeting
In cooperating with the government after he was charged, Papadopoulos participated in four proffer sessions with the government. The meeting would never take place and Papadopoulos would be arrested soon after on July 27, 2017.

The call ends with a disclaimer that the message was produced by The Road to Power, a Idaho based white-supremacist and anti-Semitic group and video podcast hosted by Scott Rhodes. The newspaper said his group had been behind robocall campaigns during political contests in states including Virginia, Oregon and California. Robocalls have always been used in political campaigns.

Tibbetts' father Rob Tibbetts wrote an op-ed in the Des Moines Register on Saturday, decrying the right-wing punditry around his daughter's death. The Tallahassee Democrat reports that calls have previously used "the local area code and prefix followed by a four-digit number associated with neo-Nazi rhetoric". "They are now using full bullhorns". Experts tell NPR that it costs around 1 to 5 cents per call.

Gillum responded by claiming that Florida couldn't do it alone; taxes would not be raised, and that 700,000 people would be helped, before he claimed that it was a personal issue for him as he claimed that he had a rough childhood. A spokesperson for the candidate later said the comments were not racially charged. "I am not going to get into the gutter and name call", said Gillum. I want to make sure we don't racialize and frankly weaponize race as part of the process which is why i have called on my opponent to work to rise above some of these things.

"Well, I mean, I think what's important is that Mr. DeSantis and obviously the president really try to go high on this thing, ' said Gillum".
