The main government struggles will shape the future US political landscape

Strong battles in Georgia and Florida threw liberal black Democrats against white Republicans, backed by President Donald Truem, named the three tribes of the dozen rulers questioned in the US elections on Tuesday.

In Georgia, Stacey Abrams struggles to become the country's first black ruler. Georgia's 44-year-old politician and mayor of Tallahassee, Florida, Andrew Gillum, will be the first black ruler in each state.

Abrams and Gillum, 39, are experiencing a new liberal path in the southern states where traditional, centrist Democrats have repeatedly lost. They seek to gather more new voters and minorities, which usually favor Democrats, but are often put to elections in years of no presidential vote.

Trump's reputation is on Georgia and Florida, since its ratifications helped Georgia's Foreign Minister Bryan Kahn and former Florida wife Ron Dean to ratify Republican nominations for their country's open directorates-general.

Categories for breed bait have aggressive Kemp, 55, and DeSantis, 40. They deny the charges.

Gillum, along with his wife and three young children, sent his vote to a boiled breakfast at Tallahassee, the capital of Florida. He then stated that his election would send a message to Trump "that the policy of hatred and separation, division, that they are over".

"We are returning the policy of decency and what is right and what is commonplace among all of us," he told reporters with a voice sucked out of the campaign. "We will be worried about the story later, but today we are working to win."

DeSantis, after voting on Ponte Vedra Beach, told reporters: "We did what we can do and I'm happy, let the chips fall off where they can."

While a large part of Tuesday's election focuses on the party that gains control of the US Congress, Republicans and Democrats are fighting all over the country for state power, which can help them support or resist Trump's agenda such as health care, and homosexual rights.

Democrats, playing the prospect after a net loss of 13 governments and more than 900 state law offices during Obama's eight-year rule, ranked the largest number of their legislative candidates in more than three decades.

The Republicans currently control the mansions of 33 governors and two-thirds of state chambers of law.

The outcome of the elections for state positions could also affect the future control of the US House of Representatives.

Governors and hundreds of lawmakers elected this year will be in power when the Congressional regions are rebuilt after the 2020 census. In some states, the governor's authority to sign or deny the Congress map could decide on the resistance balance.


Jennifer Duffy, who analyzes the government's struggles for political non-government voting, expects the Democrats to hold six to eight governments away from the Republicans, who defend a large number of open seats in the battle states.

Critical competitions are taking place in the Midwestern and Rust Belt states that marked the Trump's 2016 victory, where democratic losses could damage the chances of re-election in 2020.

Polls show democratic government nominations leading or very competitive in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. These states usually vote democratically in the presidential election, but in 2016 it moved to Trump, securing its victory in the electoral club system that brings victories to states, even when it lost national voter voting.

The Republicans also struggle with tough tribes in several states considered to be conservative forts in the northern and central Great Plains.

"The toast will be if the Democrats take a South Dakota, Kansas, Oklahoma – these very, very red (democratic) states," said Duffy noting the local dynamics and not the national politics, he was primarily responsible for the weaknesses of Democrats.

The Republicans, however, could win in the Democratic Republic and get a pair of government seats in Oregon and Connecticut.

Polls show tight struggles in Georgia and Florida, where current Republican rulers can not resume because of borders.

Trump has traveled to every state in the last days of the campaign to turn the Republicans into "Make Great America Again". Former President Barack Obama hastened to push Democrats and media star Oprah Winfrey visited Georgia on behalf of Abrams.

In Georgia, critics drew attention to Kemp's double role as a candidate for the governor and the head of state elections, in his capacity as secretary of state. Kemp accused Democrats of Sunday of trying to spoil voter registration systems without offering any evidence. Officials of the Democratic Party quickly denied the charge.

The main candidates for Georgia candidates face an additional challenge from a minor candidate. If neither Abrams nor Kemp gains the majority of the vote on Tuesday, their battle continues until the December elections.

In Florida, the rage of the current political climate weighed Bob Marky of Tallahassee as he voted for Gillum as governor. The 54-year-old painter, a Democrat, said he also supported candidates from both parties for local offices.

"I was just looking for a change," he said. "The political environment has taken a little out of hand."
