President Trump weighed in the Florida governor’s race in a statement on Twitter Wednesday morning.

In Tuesday’s primary, candidates on each side pulled off stunning victories, as Trump-backed Rep. Ron DeSantis won the Republican primary, and Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, backed by Sen. Bernie Sanders, won the Democratic primary.

The president tweeted:

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 & many other problems to flourish in his city. This is not what Florida wants or needs!

In another Twitter post, President Trump blasted the Obama administration for spying on his presidential campaign by repeating quotes from Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson:

“The Obama people did something that’s never been done…They spied on a rival presidential campaign. Would it be OK if Trump did it next? I am losing faith that our system is on the level. I’m beginning to think it is rotten & corrupt. Scary stuff Obama did.” @TuckerCarlson DOJ

“Hillary Clinton and the DNC paid for information from the Russian government to use against her government – there’s no doubt about that!” @TuckerCarlson
