New campaign ad sparks bipartisan outrage with the midterm election days away
The presidential ad that has been sparking bipartisan outrage.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 31, 2018
The video, which was posted to President Donald Trump’s Twitter account, blames the Democrats for letting convicted cop killer, Luis Bracamontes, into the country.
Thursday, Republican Senator Jeff Flake called the ad disgusting. He urged fellow republicans to denounce it.
But so far, the Trump endorsed candidate for governor in Florida, Ron DeSantis, has not done that.
A day after his MAGA rally in Estero, DeSantis campaigned with Senator Marco Rubio in Miami and continued to play up his close ties to Trump.
“I think Andrew is running on impeaching Trump,” DeSantis said. “And I get that Trump isn’t everybody’s cup of tea, but when you take that extreme position, he’s not going to be able to work with the administration to advance Florida’s priorities.”
In nearby Homestead, Andrew Gillum told supporters electing him would be a very public rejection of the Trump agenda.
“We are going to change not only the face of the future of the state of Florida, but the face of the nation,” Gillum said. “All eyes, and I gotta tell you. All eyes across the world are right here on the state of Florida.”
The question now, which message will resonate with voters in the remaining five days until the midterm election.
