In a somewhat crowded field this campaign video by Repubulican Ron Desantis, who is seeking to be the next Florida Governor takes a lot of beating.
He is someone who used the phrase “monkey this up” in a barely disguised racist dog whistle when talking about his Democratic opponent.
His opponent, Democrat Andrew Gillum was backed by Bernie Sanders, spent millions less than others on the Democrat Primary campaign, has a distinctly left wing policy platform and is willing to take on the NRA by insisting that guns should not be shot in public parks.
I’m proud to be supporting @staceyabrams for Governor of Georgia, @BenJealous for Governor of Maryland, and @AndrewGillum for Governor of Florida. Victories for these three great candidates will change America in a very significant way. https://t.co/V0mwrsjW5d

He replied to Desantis’ comment by saying that it was straight out of Donald Trump’s playbook.
His campaign video is distinctly different to Desantis’.
It is good to see the emergence of left wing community based candidates not depending on corporate finances in the United States.
And if anyone has seen a worse campaign video than Desantis’ mention it in comments.
