DeSantis came from behind with the help of Trump to beat Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, who campaigned longer, raised more money and built party establishment support.

And while the #MAGA crowd was enthused their president could put someone over the top like that, another online collective was just as excited.

"On the first day of the general election, Ron DeSantis showed Floridians who he really is", Democratic Governors Association Deputy Communications Director David Turner said. "He's an honest man and he's going to be the next governor of the state of Florida".

However, despite Q supporters' presence at his events, DeSantis claimed yesterday that he has no knowledge of the conspiracy.

"I think he's already incriminated himself by interfering in the Department of Justice, firing James Comey, of whom I'm no fan of, but basically obstructing justice", Gillum said.

American Bridge, closely associated with the Democratic Party and heavily funded by NY billionaire George Soros, contends in a news release that the ad is part of a campaign aimed at painting DeSantis as someone focused on appeasing Trump, "not helping Florida families".

He said socialism is "not good for any race, color or creed", and that he won't let Democrats and critics "obscure a debate" on the issues with claims of racism.

DeSantis based almost his entire primary run on Trump and acknowledged his endorsement was the key.

Florida and Arizona are both closely watched states, featuring growing minority populations that have bolstered Democratic candidates and Republican electorates that have grown older and more conservative.

McSally will take on Democrat Kyrsten Sinema as Republicans seek to hold on to their slim 51-49 majority in the Senate in November.

Andrew Gillum was expected by many to be an also-ran in Florida's Democratic gubernatorial primary. None of that is my cup of tea but he performed better than the other people there so we've got to work hard to make sure that we continue Florida going in a good direction.

On the Democratic side, progressive candidate Andrew Gillum, also 39, won the nomination in a surprising upset.

Republican gubernatorial nominee Ron DeSantis.

While both parties saw record turnout, with more than 1.4 million Democrats voting and nearly 1.6 million Republicans, nearly 27 percent of registered voters in Florida are independent.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has defeated a Republican challenger in the primary round of his re-election bid.

After Ms McSally's victory, however, he tweeted: "Martha, a great US Military fighter jet pilot and highly respected member of Congress, WINS BIG". They also are among the most ardent Trump defenders, something DeSantis does frequently on Fox News. Florida's registered Republicans are 83 percent white.

Following her win Tuesday, President Trump praised McSally for her win and rejecting an endorsement from Senator Jeff Flake.
