(Studio: John Berman) What Republican Florida gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis said about his black Democratic opponent Andrew Gillum examined; scenes shown from the campaign. [On Fox, DeSANTIS - says the last thing we need to do is "monkey this up."] [On Fox, GILLUM - says DeSantis is taking a page from President Trump's book, so he won't get down in the gutter but talk about the state of Florida.]

(Studio: John Berman) Live discussion held with CNN's former Trump campaign aide Michael Caputo, Republican Amanda Carpenter & BET News host Marc Lamont Hill about whether DeSantis made a racist remark. [HILL, CAPUTO, CARPENTER - offer views on rallying a defense around racism, denies it is racist language, how the DeSantis campaign denies racism but Fox has criticized the language, that DeSantis is trying to ride Trump's coattails, how Republicans are pushing the race button to rally the Trump base, how Gillum is a strong candidate, but there is socialism behind his policies, which won't fly in Florida, the need to talk about Florida, not national issues.]

Berman, John
