Florida Democrat gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum conceded to Republican Ron DeSantis on election night.

Two days later, Gillum has rescinded the concession.

Here’s the scoop…

From Free Beacon:

Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum (D.) conceded the Florida gubernatorial election Tuesday night, but his campaign is now rescinding that decision to allow more ballots to be counted.

With 99 percent of precincts reporting, the ballot returns show Republican Ron DeSantis leading by about 0.6 percent, a wider margin than the 0.5 percent required to trigger a recount, but Gillum’s campaign claims there are more outstanding ballots than Gillum realized when he conceded.

Gillum wants to pay teachers a minimum salary of $50,000 and raise the minimum wage from $8.25 to $15.

He also intends to make college, essentially, free.

A new study shows taxes in Florida would spike to the tune of billions of dollars if Gillum’s policies are implemented – as one could expect.

From Free Beacon:

Progressive Democrat Andrew Gillum’s tax plan proposals “would adversely impact the business climate of the state” if he is elected governor, costing Florida 155,000 jobs and $28.2 billion in economic loses per year, according to the James Madison Institute (JMI), a Tallahassee-based conservative think-tank.

Conversely, JMI maintains, conservative Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis’ tax plan proposals, which include eliminating the state’s Business Rental Tax, would “lead to the creation of 215,000 jobs annually and $26.6 billion in annual economic output.”

Gillum recently stated that police officers are going “too far” if they pull out a gun, baton, or taser in the line of duty.

“At the time that a law enforcement official has to go to a weapon, to a gun, to a baton, to a taser, then they have already have to go too far by their very presence,” he continued. “By the very trust that they inspire in community and in society, they are supposed to be able to bring most situations to heel.”

Was there election tampering in Florida on election night?

A citizen captured video of election officials transferring ballots in a rented truck on election night.

The huge problem is the lack of a chain of custody.
