Ron DeSantis and Andrew Gillum Choose Running Mates
Republican Ron DeSantis
Republican State Representative Jeanette Nuñez has been chosen by Ron DeSantis. Nunez is the first time a female Cuban-American has been chosen for the position of lieutenant governor candidate in Florida.
Nunez is good friends with Senator Marco Rubio and apparently, he convinced Nunez to accept the position, but it is that friendship with Rubio that may come back to haunt her.
In a tweet during the 2016 Presidential Campaign, Nunez tweeted:
“Wake up Florida voters, Trump is the biggest con-man there is. #nosubstance #anti-Israel #supportsKKK #nevertrump.” “VOTE @marcorubio #RUBIO.”
Then she tweeted again when President Trump was inaugurated. “We live in the greatest country in the history of the world. Wishing our new #President @realDonaldTrump much success. May God bless him.”
Such is politics.
Democrat Andrew Gillum
Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum chose Chris King from Orlando, a businessman. Gillum and King met during the campaign for Governor.
