How the black vote carried Andrew Gillum to victory

Andrew Gillumís campaign always said to count on black voters.

On Tuesday, the Tallahassee mayorís upset win proved him right.

Gillumís friend-turned competitor former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham won the vast majority of counties across Florida in the stateís Democratic primary for governor. But Gillum was able to win where it mattered ó which also happens to be where more Democrats are black.

The map below shows Gillum did best in huge counties like Duval and Broward, while Graham won small and medium counties across the state and dominated the vaunted Interstate-4 corridor.


The far right is meeting the far left in Florida, and it's going to be a doozy

God bless their cranky souls, Republican voters do not fool around in Florida.

They donít care what the media says or, for that matter, the polls. They donít care which candidate the big-shot business leaders are bankrolling. They donít even care whom their own party leaders are supporting.

Back in 2010, they decided they were tired of politics-as-usual candidates and took a chance on an unknown businessman in the gubernatorial race.

Eight years later, their tone has not softened.

The voters who put Rick Scott in the Governorís Mansion and helped deliver the White House to Donald Trump have now elevated another drain-the-swamp-style candidate by the name of Ron DeSantis.

You want to know how impressive the Republicansí wrath is?

Democrats have decided to match them outrage for outrage.


Young thieves baffled by obsolete technology

Apparently a stick shift is the best theft deterrent. They would have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for being bumbling kids!

Teens allegedly tried to steal woman's car but couldn't work manual transmission

NASHVILLE, TN (RNN) Ė Two teenagers face various charges after police say they allegedly tried to carjack a woman but were unable to take off in her car due to its manual transmission.

Officers arrested a 15-year-old and a 17-year-old on an evening in early August following two separate alleged carjacking attempts, according to a police press release.

The suspects ran up to the first victim in a parking garage at 6:20 p.m. and opened the front doors on both the driver and passenger sides of her car, police say.

The victim screamed and blasted the car horn when the suspects allegedly attempted to pull her from her car. She sustained minor injuries.
