Representative Ron DeSantis, the Republican nominee for governor in Florida, drew accusations of using a racist dog whistle on Wednesday after saying in a television interview that voters should not “monkey this up” by electing his opponent, Andrew Gillum, who would be the state’s first black governor.
Mr. Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, won the primary election in an upset on Tuesday night, handing a major victory to the liberal wing of the Democratic Party.
Real subtle! Meanwhile, the MSM takeaway: is Ron Gillum too liberal?
CNN is just AMAZED that Gillum is completely unapologetic about embracing popular policy positions.
The MSM's assumption that it's electorally dangerous to not pretend to be conservative is one of the right's greatest triumphs.

Apparently, to be treated as mainstream by CNN Democratic candidates need fewer popular economic policies and more race-baiting.
