No problems were reported elsewhere in the state. On Tuesday, after clinching the GOP nomination, DeSantis credited the President for helping boost his candidacy. Gillum supports Medicare for all, abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement and impeaching President Trump.
If elected, Gillum would be Florida's first African-American governor. He often said he was the only candidate in the race who wasn't a millionaire or billionaire, and won the endorsement of Vermont Sen. Bill Clinton was the last Democratic presidential nominee to carry Arizona in 1996.
He also congratulated Rick Scott for his win in the Senate primary. She'll face off with the victor of a seven-way Democratic primary in November.
Democrats had been hoping for a victory by one of the right-wing candidates - Ward or Arpaio - in a bid to increase their chances of capturing the seat. Both candidates will try to lure Hispanic voters, though Republicans tend to court South Florida Cubans while Democrats typically reach out more to Central Florida Puerto Ricans.

And Roth thinks McSally could work with President Donald Trump.
"It's a choice between a doer and a talker, between a patriot and a protester, between a career fighter pilot and a career politician", Ms McSally said to loud cheers at the Republicans' own election watch party.
"And I'm running on a platform that says "We're going to create opportunities for everyday Floridians" and that's whats most important to do in order to prevail on November 6", said Gillum. Trump spared Arpaio a possible jail sentence a year ago by pardoning his federal conviction stemming from immigration patrols.
Now McSally will face Democrat Kyrsten Sinema, a fellow USA representative who easily won her primary, in the race to fill the seat being vacated by Senator Jeff Flake.
Cindy McCain has emerged among candidates to occupy the Arizona senate seat left vacant after her husband John died from brain cancer on Saturday. McSally will face U.S. Rep. Krysten Sinema, D-Ariz., in the November election as they seek the seat of retiring U.S. Sen. "There will absolutely be a part of this that I can't even put words to around what it might mean for my children and other people's kids".
