President Donald Trump on Wednesday hailed Rep. Ron DeSantis' primary victory in Florida's governor race and touted his chances in November, tweeting that his disciple has a "dream" matchup against "failed socialist mayor" Andrew Gillum.

"Not only did Congressman Ron DeSantis easily win the Republican primary, but his opponent in November is his biggest dream … a failed socialist mayor named Andrew Gillum who has allowed crime and many other problems to flourish in his city," Trump tweeted.

DeSantis and Gillum - both 39 years old - pulled off primary upsets Tuesday in the Sunshine State but Gillum's victory was the most shocking. The Tallahassee mayor had polled poorly in a crowded Democratic field, led by front-runner Gwen Graham, and spent the least of any of the candidates.

Gillum is gunning to become the first black governor of Florida.
