Emails show Federal Bureau of Investigation agent helped cover 2016 Gillum fundraising event

Former President Barack Obama is campaigning for the Florida mayor - who would be the first black governor in the state's history - and sitting Democratic Sen.

"He called a me a dog at the debate", DeSantis said after Fox News 13 Tampa reporter Jennifer Holton asked him about the issue.

Trump didn't say what exactly the Democrat squaring off next Tuesday against Ron DeSantis stole, but may have been hinting at a scandal involving free tickets to "Hamilton" that Gillum was revealed to have been caught up in this month.

But, they repeatedly returned to personal attacks in the process, suggesting the race has turned into an all-out verbal brawl as the candidates enter the home stretch of an election that has drawn national attention as something of a proxy to larger political headwinds in America. DeSantis responded. "Let me just say this straight up".

An undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent might have paid more than $4,000 in food and drinks for one of Andrew Gillum's campaign fundraisers in 2016, according to a new batch of records released Friday.

DeSantis also ripped Gillum for accepting a trip to Costa Rica from a lobbyist who then won a $2 million contract from the city.

After the appearance outside the Florida State University College of Law, Gillum was slated to make additional stops Friday at the University of Florida in Gainesville and Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach.

After the clip of Gillum's precision takedown on Wednesday began to circulate on Twitter, DeSantis was widely ridiculed.

At the forum at TKAE, Gillum described himself as a "deep and unapologetic friend" to the State of Israel and recalled the trips that he has taken to Israel as part of the sister city program between Tallahassee and Ramat HaSharon. "Where is the evidence of where you went and how our money was spent to be a junket for you to go to NY and hang out in "Faux News and Friends"?" he asked.

Geoff Burgan, a Gillum campaign spokesman said in a statement that Kise's decision to release the records was politically motivated, and that Gillum "did not receive any contributions or in-kinds from Mike Miller".

"That is what corruption is ..."

During the rally at Mo's Bagels, DeSantis told the crowd that one of his proudest moments was being present at the opening of the United States Embassy in Jerusalem earlier this year.

DeSantis, moreover, painted his opponent as an extremist who signed a "radical manifesto" by a group called Dream Defenders, which favors ending investment in Israel and has been critical of police and US foreign policy.

"I know firsthand that when we start going down that road, it can be very, very deadly, so I condemn that", he said, before warning against "jumping to conclusions" about the explosives sent exclusively to Democratic politicians and to CNN. "Gillum, you've got just one more voice for the resistance".

The sparring, to some extent, obscured stark differences on the issues. Gillum proposes hiking the corporate income tax by 45 percent to pay for increased education funding. DeSantis defends them as a viable option for some parents.

The candidates also differ on voting rights for felons.

The Tallahassee mayor told about 500 people at Temple Kol Ami Emmanu-El near Fort Lauderdale that he will not appoint anyone who supports a boycott of Israel, and he backs funding to provide security to Jewish schools.
