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".

"The manufactured outrage has got to stop", DeSantis told host Laura Ingraham.

Pastors from five predominantly black churches in Miami-Dade County stood outside the 93rd Street Community Baptist Church on Thursday morning as they challenged DeSantis to clear the cloud that hangs over him in the race for Florida governor.

Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and other national progressive figures, had been trailing a more moderate Democrat in the polls right up until Election Day.

"Well, in the handbook of Donald Trump, they no longer do whistle calls", said Gillum.

Republican gubernatorial nominee Ron DeSantis.

The new approach - being taken by Gillum and also Abrams in Georgia and some Democrats in other states - eschews moderation and emphasizes advocacy of strongly progressive positions.
