Democratic Florida gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum speaks at a campaign rally in Miami

Gillum accused DeSantis of dishonesty, pointing to a PolitiFact analysis that the Republican candidate had made 21 false statements during a previous debate. "And when I got there after work, got my ticket, we went in there and saw it, assumed my brother paid for it, and so far as I know, that was the deal".

Andrew Gillum, the Democratic candidate for governor in Florida and mayor of Tallahassee, is running against Republican Ron DeSantis.

DeSantis denounced the latest calls at an Orlando campaign event on Tuesday, saying "It's disgusting", and that the media should "investigate who's doing that".

The exchange is a snapshot of how candidates from both parties are grappling with race less than two weeks before the midterms.

The attack ad was launched Wednesday by a Florida political committee called Florida Truth. "Let me know if I can help on anything".

Almost 870,000 GOP voters have cast ballots compared to slightly more than 808,000 Democrats. Fear of the other, fear of losing their country.

'Say you're convicted of child molestation. Donors include the Florida Democratic Party, Comcast Corporation, the Law Offices of Steven R. Andrews, Rick Kearney, Bart Bunter, Sam Rogers and more.

"What I wanted to make sure that folks understood was that these messages only confirm what we have said all along", he insisted.

In Georgia, reports have surfaced over Democrat Stacey Abrams' involvement in a protest more than 25 years ago in which the old state flag - which contained a Confederate symbol at the time - was burned.

Gillum: "I was mistaken".

A DeSantis loss would inevitably be perceived as a repudiation of the president, some Republicans say. But Floridians must soldier on in the few days remaining of the 2018 election cycle and decide whether Gillum is the answer, or just another corruptible "what's in for me" politician. Otherwise, if voter pools reflected a 2016 electorate, historically likely voters, people who claim to be certain to vote, and every registered voter, Gillum was up (and by nine points with historically reliable voters). Sickness, fear and police harassment could further whittle down the group, estimated to be about 4,000 to 5,000, which is more than 1,000 miles (1,600 kilometers) from the USA border.

He also pointed out that the National Rifle Association endorses DeSantis, as has President Trump. State prison. Are you going to hand them over to ICE or not?' he said.
