In Florida, Republican Congressmember Ron DeSantis has announced he’s immediately resigning from Congress in order to focus on his gubernatorial campaign. DeSantis is in a tight race against Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who is vying to be the first African-American governor in Florida’s history. DeSantis’s resignation from Congress comes as The Washington Post has revealed he has spoken four times at a conservative conference where far-right speakers regularly spout Islamophobic, xenophobic and racist views. Other recent speakers at the annual David Horowitz Freedom Center Restoration Weekend conference include President Trump’s former chief strategist Stephen Bannon and white supremacist Milo Yiannopoulos.
