Andrew Gillum said Thursday that Ron DeSantis needs to put some "respect" on his name, after the former congressman continually referred to the Tallahassee mayor by his first name during the two contentious debates for Florida governor.
I'll admit, with so many exciting political races happening across the country, Florida's gubernatorial race had mostly slipped past my radar.
"Some of this is generationally driven".
Reached Friday, Barnes said "I don't have any information other than the email exchange".
Gillum attacked DeSantis for his endorsement by the National Rifle Association (NRA) and favors more restrictions on gun ownership. Gillum said. "I felt surely somebody prepared him a little bit better than this to come on this stage and have nothing to say about what he wants to do for the people of the state of Florida". "It was disappointing to see it disintegrate into personal attacks, and it makes it hard for people who are encouraging civic engagement".
Earlier this week Kise released texts and other information contradicting Gillum's assertion that he paid all of his expenses on trips to Costa Rica and New York City, which are the subject of the ethics complaints.
"The Republicans obviously want to distract, want to suggest- all along on the trail they've wanted the people of this state to believe somehow I haven't deserved what I've gotten, I'm unethical, participated in illegal and illicit activity".

The victor or winners would also have a one-time cash option of $428.6 million - a prize that's still more than alright. The prize was $50,000, but because the player also bought the Power Play option, the ticket is worth $100,000.
"The goal is obviously to use my candidacy as a way to reinforce, frankly, stereotypes about black men", said Gillum, who is African American.
The new development is just the latest disaster for the Gillum campaign with only 11 days before the election.
In a telephone interview, Gillum said he listened to the beginning of the audio but didn't play all of it. Only that contractor turned out to be an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent. He did not immediately return a request for comment.
"I did go and see Hamilton", said Gillum. "I'm simply saying the racists believe he is a racist".
"These things are also not only created to go after their base of voters who they think is going to be motivated by these kinds of things, but there's also a little bit of an effort to throw me off my game", Gillum said.
"I should have asked more questions to make sure that everything that transpired was above board", Gillum said, before quickly trying to switch topics.
Gillum has previously said his brother gave him the tickets.
But one Democratic consultant said the controversy could derail Gillum's campaign if the story lingers, comparing it ironically to the letter then-FBI director James Comey issued in the final two weeks of the 2016 presidential campaign noting that a probe of Clinton's private Secretary of State email server had been revived.
