Sen. Frank Artiles, a Republican who represents District 40 in Miami-Dade, said he was stepping down in a letter to Senate President Joe Negron.

"My actions and my presence in government is now a distraction to my colleagues, the legislative process, and the citizens of our great State", Artiles wrote.

"I am responsible and I am accountable and effective immediately, I am resigning from the Florida State Senate".

CBS Miami reports Republican Sen. Joe Negron as the State's Senate President. Audrey Gibson, D-Jacksonville, and Perry Thurston, D-Fort Lauderdale, Monday night at the exclusive Governors Club in Tallahassee. The Herald also reported Artiles referred to Gibson as "this bitch" and "girl" and told Gibson and Sen.

Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, an announced candidate, called Artiles' resignation the "right move for Florida". Instead, the State Senator issued a lukewarm apology, hired an attorney, and vowed to fight to remain in the Senate.

"As Senator Artiles has noted, he holds himself responsible and accountable for his actions and comments", Negron wrote.

"The only thing unclear is how he does it (i.e., does he go out guns blazing?)."

"I wish Senator Artiles the best, and I hope that, upon reflection, he finds consolation in knowing that his actions, today, show the contrition demanded, and the Senate was owed", Braynon said. Shortly after his comments, Artiles said that not only wouldn't he resign, but he would run for re-election in 2018.

"There is simply no room for racial, hurtful language spoken to your colleagues or anyone else", Bondi Said.

"I apologize to my family and friends and I apologize to all my fellow Senators and lawmakers", Artiles said. Gov. Scott will have to call a special election to replace Artiles, probably within the next 60 days. Artiles, a man who once filed an bad transgender bathroom bill, publicly apologized last Wednesday, stating, "With regard to the word which I used toward no one in particular, but is rightfully the most inflammatory, I know my explanation is inadequate but it is honest".
