Fresh off his stunning upset victory in the Democratic primary for Florida Governor, candidate Andrew Gillum found himself in the spotlight again today for a more despicable reason. His GOP rival Ron DeSantis used a phrase about Gillum which can only be perceived as racist and in the very least, out of touch. DeSantis, when asked about facing Gillum in the race to be the governor of Florida said, that voters would “monkey this up” if they elected his African-American opponent, Andrew Gillum, to be governor.
Gillum would become the first African-American governor in Florida history. As for DeSantis, looks like he’s got a new monkey on his back the rest of this campaign season.
