Report: RGA’s Attack Ad on Andrew Gillum Filled with “Sweeping Generalizations” and Not “Tethered to Reality”

Ron DeSantis and his out-of-state allies are under fire for their desperate, outright lies about Andrew Gillum.

In a new fact check WFTV’s Christopher Heath reports that the RGA’s attacks on Gillum are filled with “some sweeping generalizations” and “that not all of the attacks are tethered to reality.” Heath says the RGA’s attack lines are “not quite half true” and that while the RGA’s ad takes place in space — “reality remains back on earth.”

The fact check is the latest takedown of Ron DeSantis and his allies’ false attacks on Andrew Gillum. This weekend, the Tampa Bay Times reported that DeSantis’s attacks had “veered into the absurd” — leading USF St. Pete political scientist Darryl Paulson, a former Republican, to say DeSantis was essentially admitting that “I can’t persuade voters on the real issues so I’m going to raise fear and doubt.” DeSantis has also been roundly criticized for attacking Andrew Gillum as a socialist by everyone from Miami Herald columnist Fabiola Santiago to WPLG’s Michael Putney to the staff of PolitiFact, who rated the claim false.
