When Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was running against Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum, DeSantis showed his true colors: he adopted the classic Republican message. In this piece of campaign literature from 2018, DeSantis warns voters: “Don’t let Michael Bloomberg and George Soros control Florida!”
Why would he use Bloomberg and Soros in his literature?
These are buzzwords for Jews, which is odd since south Florida has a large Jewish population. But, for DeSantis and Republican followers, this is a comforting message.
Remember, this Republican message. It is still being used by Trump and his supporters today.
