Florida gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis’s (R) campaign is pushing back against newly unearthed tweets that showed a Republican activist and campaign ally calling former President Obama a racial slur.
Politico on Thursday reported that Steven Alembik, who has donated more than $20,000 to DeSantis, called Obama the n-word and a Muslim in a since-deleted tweet.
The article goes on to state the following:
“We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: we adamantly denounce this sort of disgusting rhetoric,” DeSantis campaign spokesman Stephen Lawson told Politico in a statement.
Alembik acknowledged to the news outlet that he fired off a tweet on Sept. 8 in response to a Republican National Committee (RNC) post that highlighted Obama’s criticism that the GOP had become a party of resentment and paranoia.
