Gillum, a frequent critic of President Trump, called DeSantis, an outspoken Trump supporter, a liar who should be disqualified from being elected. Gillum, an African-American mayor of Tallahassee, has excited liberals across the state - and presumably, he would work to gin up support for the eventual Democratic nominee...
