TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Race, the economy, the environment and President Donald Trump were subjects of the first debate in Florida governor’s race.

Former Republican U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis and Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum squared off Sunday on CNN, clearly setting out their differences.

Gillum criticized DeSantis for a comment he made that Florida voters wouldn’t “monkey this up” by voting for the black mayor and implied DeSantis aligns himself with racists.

DeSantis said Gillum would hurt Florida’s economy by raising taxes and hiking the minimum wage.

And on Trump, Gillum criticized the president, but said he would be happy to work with him to bring money to Florida for needed projects.

DeSantis replied, “That’s just not the way it works,” DeSantis said his close relationship with Trump is better suited to securing his help.

    Too early to start celebrating, lets get out there and vote for Andrew so another one of Chump puppets doesn’t get in office

    Ron “#45 Stooge” wasn’t ready. Andrew was unimpeachable on the facts. The lobbyists are corrupt and have our politicians in their pockets. Common sense gun control legislation is not an attack on the NRA. We need more candidates to take the mask off these boogeymen who are co-opting and manipulating politicians to do their bidding. I hope Andrew wins or Floridians are in trouble. Ron’s monkeying around comment was all you need to know about who he is. Fat meat is greasy and a racist is a racist. VOTE!

    • Also, the bigoted white boy refuse to address the mayor as Mr. Gillum. He kept calling him Andrew. He was deliberately being disrespectful. Just like his fake prez.
