Ron DeSantis’ ‘monkey this up’ remark draws criticism, Andrew Gillum responds


The race for Florida governor has already stirred controversy after Republican candidate Ron DeSantis said in a TV interview that the state should not “monkey this up” by electing progressive candidate Andrew Gillum, the first African-American to be a major-party nominee for governor in Florida. Florida Democrats called out the remark as “disgusting” and “racist.” Gillum responded saying, “We're better than this in Florida.”
