Ron DeSantis: Florida Can’t ‘Monkey This Up’ by Electing My African American Competitor

‘That is not going to work or be good for Florida’

EXCERPT:

DESANTIS: "This is — Florida elections are always competitive. This is a guy who, although he is much too liberal for Florida, I think he's got huge problems with how he has governed Tallahassee. He is an articulate spokesman for the far left views and he is a charismatic candidate. I watched those Democrat debates. None of that is my cup of tea but I mean, he performed better than the other people there. So we have to work hard to make sure we continue Florida going in a good direction. Let’s build off the success we've had with Governor Scott. The last thing we need to do is to monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases and bankrupting the state. That is not going to work or that's not going to be good for Florida. So I’m going to fight for what I believe in because I think I’m the guy who can really lead Florida in a good direction."
