  1. Gillum is an overprivileged leftist taking money and favors even before the election! No more criminal Demon-rats in government!

  2. That is the dumbest ad I have ever seen…what kind of commercial was that. I can’t wait until Gillum destroy this dude

  3. Under Gilliums watch Tallahassee has become one of the most violent cities in the nation. I lived in a neighborhood that had 2 separate gun fights within the month. That was close to university. Two people shot dead in a yoga salon last Friday. But gillium says crime is going down I just don't know where

  4. More racism crap? Wow never mind any actual policies and their effects on the country…. let’s just call people racist! You people are sick.

  5. i feel sorry for pale people.. they only hate us because we are black.. if i was pale id hate yall too.. they just want to be us or want all of us dead.. it aint fair to them.. why did god bless us and not them..

  6. Crazy how despite all of this Gillum is only a few percentage points ahead…shows that a lot of Americans either dont mind the racism or actively endorse it

  7. If Gillum becomes governor, he will embrace liberal policies that will reverse the relentless focus on rebuilding Florida as an economic powerhouse. This is a referendum on DeSantis, capitalism vs. Gillum, socialism, the future of our country is at stake. Will we continue with a great profitable economy for all or become Venezuela?

  8. The amount of stupidity across people in this comment section is truly astonishing. Please at least read economics in one lesson before supporting any candidate.

    I dont care about race or racism at all or any personal attacks because that's all Gillum has, a bundle of logical fallacies, mainly ad hominem. I care about actual policy and proposals.

    And I would like any of you to seriously argue for any of Gillum's proposals or policies.

  9. Democrats didn’t care when Madonna said she had thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House. Democrats didn’t care when Kathy Griffin posed with a mock severed head of President Trump. Democrats didn’t care when a Broadway Play depicted the assassination of President Trump. Democrats didn’t care when Johnny Depp said, “how long has been since an actor assassinated a President”. Democrats didn't care when Snoop Dog and Eminem made music videos about assassinating President Trump. Democrats didn’t care when dozens of people were shot to death at a Jason Aldean concert. Democrats didn’t care when Congressman Steve Scalise was shot at a baseball game. Democrats didn’t care when Robert De Niro said “somebody needs to take out Trump”. Democrats didn’t care when Carole Cook said "Where's John Wilkes Booth when you need him?" Democrats didn’t care when Republican candidate Rudy Peters was attacked by a man with a switchblade. Democrats didn’t care when a Republican Party Office was set on fire. Democrats didn’t care when Eric Holder said “When they go low, we kick ‘em”. Democrats didn’t care when Trump family members received suspicious packages in the mail. Democrats didn’t care when Secretary of Defense James Mattis received death threats. Democrats didn’t care when Maxine Waters said “you get up in their face at the mall, in restaurants, at gas stations and you tell them Republicans they’re not welcomed anywhere”. Democrats didn’t care when Sarah Sanders and her family were harassed at a restaurant, instructed to leave and chased down the street. Democrats didn’t care when Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was harassed and chased out of a Mexican restaurant. Democrats didn’t care when Trump adviser Stephen Miller’s life was threatened and he was chased out of a restaurant. Democrats didn’t care when Attorney General Pam Bondi was harassed and chased out of a theatre. Democrats didn't care when Rand Paul was attacked and beaten up in his own yard. Democrats didn’t care when two Republican senators: Rob Portman of Ohio and John Boozman of Arkansas were harassed in their own yards and on their own doorsteps. Democrats didn’t care when a 71-year-old female staffer for California Rep. Dana Rohrbacher was knocked unconscious by an angry group of liberal protesters. Democrats didn’t care when a North Carolina GOP office was firebombed by an angry mob of liberals. Democrats didn’t care when Hillary Clinton said “we can’t be civil to Republicans until Democrats return to power”.Democrats didn't care when they shot out 4 windows at a GOP Fla headquarters on Sunday October 28,2018.
    For over two years Democrats have encouraged hate, harassment, vandalism, acts of violence and even threats of assassination.

  10. Oh racist racist racist… you'd think people would get tired of this stupid victim nonsense. I'm voting DeSantis.

  11. Most blacks have never heard of Gillum and will vote for him because he is black. That's okay , I voted for Desantis because he is white

  12. I voted last week. Right outside the polling center, there was a lady with a tent setup and a sign that said "Democrats sign in here". I stayed parked in my car to observe for a few minutes. I watched about 50 people walk past, not a single person stopped. Based on my polling center, it looks like a big win for Republicans!

  13. Typical socialist. Use racism and hate to get elected. We have fought Socialist countries for years, and now we have a socialist party masquerading as Democrats trying to gain control of America with the help of the media.

  14. I’ve emailed Democrats and Republicans on if they will fully legalizing marijuana in Florida and I get no response from any politician. -_-

  15. That ad promotes hatred and racism just by mentioning TRUMP'S name in it ! Trump is one who the world has known for his meanness and ugly temperament !!

  16. Too many folks did not see the Gillum staffer and college friend reveal Gillum's true strategy. We can expect Gillum to push for a 40% increase in business taxes that we consumers will pay for and he favors, I've read, a new state income tax to fund his spending goals. Increased crime has been a problem in Tallahassee so we can expect the same, particularly if he makes Florida a sanctuary state like California. Expect more Kate Steinley murders and shootings.

  17. Andrew biggest con in history hateful commentaries a sick Trump is Great love Trump we believe in God and God loves him a miracle as Trump is our President loves all races has a wonderful love for blacks has supported them throughout his life only one who has taken race bait is Democrats that is their Card to try take down Trump the Democrats are skillful at race baiting have taken it viral the reality is they have David duke as when the KKKk began with Democrats dah racism Democrats

  18. NO VOTES POR GILLUM, a el no le importa los latinos!!!!!
    El es corrupto como Chavez!!!
    NO MAS IMPUESTOS!!!!! LAS PROMESAS DE GILLUM SON FALSAS. El es corrupto!
    NO, NO, NO

  19. I don't think Gillum should run for president, running for governor in one of the biggest states is enough. This is revolutionary but not every Democratic black man in politics is Obama!!

  20. Gillum & O'Rourke are looking promising. Finally good American politics. No idea how America has let the undermining go on for so long. Intelligence community?? Mr. Muller, anytime would be great??

  21. Hello World: "#BringitHome"

    PLEASE SHARE THIS VIDEO on behalf of all CONCERNED FLORIDIANS!

    Hello Floridians/Team Gillum:

    President Donald Trump called Mayor Andrew Gillum a "Thief & a Good 4 Nothing Mayor" in his tweet (Monday, Oct 29th 2018) We need to challenge him. In unity there's strength. Let' s unite behind Andrew Gillum to help him " BRING IT HOME " and send him to the Governor' s mansion in Tallahassee ! Mayor Gillum is well prepared & qualified to be our next Governor ! Please watch The " Bring it Home " VIDEO then Share it with your friends and family members. Go VOTE if you haven't voted yet and take 5 friends with you to the Polls ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bCtCLnUV70&feature=share...

  22. Wish I lived in Florida so I could vote for Gillum I think he will actually win. I live in Texas and unfortunately I don’t think we have the numbers for Beto to win :/

  23. Gillum just lost. Stop race baiting. Fake poll numbers by liberal media. “Too Trumpy”??? Actually the ad just got him a ticket as governor. Fake news.

  24. Funny the moderator didn't mention Gillam speaking to EMGAGE, a radical muslim group which lobbies against Israel. He must have "forgotten"… yeah that's the ticket.

    Now I'm not saying Gillum is an anti-semite… I'm just saying the anti-semites think he's an anti-semite.

  25. ​ Nov 7, 2018 ~~ Beverly Botte : This country is so divided right down the middle by the Dumb and the Dumber arguing over Personalities in place of Law and order! // Plz stop, look and listen to what your saying and why your blaming the President for your ignorance. // Before you engage your poison pen again, think about all the millions that are Diagnosing what your about to say out of rage. // people with your agenda rage are voting! The voting age should be moved up to 35 or pass a test to be allowed to vote. // Cease the blaming and name calling now and ask your self what can I do for my country.

  26. Gillum LOST! Obama LOST! Oprah LOST! Light always triumphs over darkness. Those who lie and scheme and race bait to get ahead will always lose in the end. You can't legislate the death of babies and desecrate the institution of marriage that God himself created to be between a man and a woman and think you will get one over on the Almighty! Jesus Christ is the king and of HIS kingdom there will be no end!

  27. i’m rewatching this and i’m so heartbroken that andrew didn’t win the race. it’s just proof that poc have to work 10X harder than their white counterparts and still fall short. America never ceases to disappoint me…

  28. Dream on tards this guy is way too far left for your normal person but obviously not for MSNBC which is loaded with a bunch of screwballs

  29. Glad this guy lost. Democrats seemed determined to ruin Florida like they did California. CA has the highest taxes, highest debt, highest cost of living and the highest housing costs. I hope people like Gillum never are elected to run Florida.
