    Again!

    Washington (CNN)Andrew Gillum, the Democratic gubernatorial candidate in Florida, conceded to his Republican opponent, former Rep. Ron DeSantis, on Saturday, ending a protracted fight that saw the Tallahassee mayor take back his Election Day concession during a statewide recount.

    The concession ended Gillum's first bid for statewide office in Florida, but the run -- despite his loss -- vaulted the 39-year old politician into the upper echelons of Democratic politics.

    Try not changing your mind again!!
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Guess they ran out of dead people votes.
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.

    The concession ended Gillum's first bid for statewide office in Florida, but the run -- despite his loss -- vaulted the 39-year old politician into the upper echelons of Democratic politics.

    "R. Jai and I wanted to take a moment to congratulate Mr. DeSantis on becoming the next governor of the great state of Florida," Gillum said in a Facebook video in which he appeared alongside his wife. "This has been the journey of our lives."
    DeSantis responded to Gillum's concession with a call for unity.
    I give Gillum this, he didn't snarl and Play the Race Card the way Stacey Abrams did.

    What's the status of the Senate race?

    De Santis will need to work with the Ds in Broward and PalmBeach Counties - who control those counties - to get rid of those counties' grossly incompetent Election Supervisors and their sycophants in the upper bureaucracy and get some competent people in to clean up those messes. The faculty of a clown college could have done better than those two incompetents!

    Too many eyes and law enforcement scrutinizing their actions this time. In 2000 it was a total surprise and unheard of ever before, there won't be another 2000 even if they still try it as this time.

    It took those ass hats a while to realize that since they got less votes than the other guys that means they lost!

    They were hoping that the corrupt officials in broward and palm beach could pull enough votes out of their ass to make them winners.
    I love the sound of liberal heads exploding in the morning!!

    Toxically masculine and proud of it!

    I will give up my guns when the liberals give up their illegal aliens.

    I never particularly liked Nelson, but it's a shame that he went out like this. You'd think he'd have at least some dignity left. Listening to the Dems suddenly getting religion and acting like they're preaching the gospel is so laughable. There's a reason they're called "dirty Dems". It's so richly earned.
