"Racial overtones were a prominent feature in the Florida’s governor’s race, from Republican Ron DeSantis’ kicking off the general election saying Gillum would “monkey this up,” to Gillum’s implying racism when DeSantis pressed him on a corruption investigation. In an election decided by less than half a percentage point, Gillum’s race plainly could have been a key factor in DeSantis’ win.

But so could the strikingly large number of black voters in Florida who chose not to vote for Gillum.

Exit polls showed 86 percent of black voters cast ballots for Gillum, and 90 percent backed Nelson. At least 95 percent of black voters backed Barack Obama 2008 and 2012."

What role did race play in Andrew Gillum’s loss to Ron DeSantis?

Polls suggested Andrew Gillum was headed for a victory to become Florida’s first black governor and likely to outperform Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, who is white. But Nelson ended up with 43,000 more votes.
