‘Ron DeSantis is extraordinary!’: Trump on Florida GOP candidate

Fox News anchor Sandra Smith said the network did not ‘condone’ a comment by Ron DeSantis, the GOP gubernatorial nominee in Florida, hours after the Trump-hugging candidate was accused of sending racist signals. DeSantis warned Wednesday: ‘The last thing we need to do is to monkey this up,’ in a comment several Democrats denounced as racist dog-whistling. DeSantis clarified the comment after getting hit with blowback. President Donald Trump attacked Florida Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum Wednesday as a ‘failed socialist’ – hours after Gillum’s historic upset primary win. The conservative DeSantis (above right) easily won the primary election on Tuesday after a campaign in which he highlighted his enthusiastic loyalty to Trump. In a surprise upset in the Democratic primary for Florida governor Gillum (above left) the mayor of Tallahassee, beat moderate Gwen Graham, the daughter of former governor and U.S. Senator Bob Graham. Gillum would be the first black governor of Florida if elected. Hypothetical matchups show Gilliam and DeSantis roughly evenly matched in the race, which politicos will be closely watching for signals for 2020.
