Vice author Max Berger called DeSantis’ campaign “openly racist.”

Mic author Alex Berg said that DeSantis’ victory shows that “white supremacy and racism” have a hold in this country.

DeSantis first came under fire for racism when he told Florida voters not to “monkey up” the state’s economic success with the policies Gillum espoused.
