Putnam and DeSantis Should Demand Republican Party of Florida Uninvite D’Souza or Pull Out of Debate

The Republican Party of Florida announced this afternoon that Dinesh D’Souza will headline an event that will also feature a debate between the Republican candidates for Florida Governor. D’Souza is a right-wing extremist, convicted felon, and conspiracy theorist who mocked the survivors of the Parkland shooting earlier this year.

“Florida’s next Governor should stand with the victims of the Parkland shooting, not the bullies who taunted the survivors,” said American Bridge spokesperson Zach Hudson. “Dinesh D’Souza is a convicted felon who mocked kids who courageously advocated for safer schools. Adam Putnam and Ron DeSantis should demand the Republican Party of Florida uninvite D’Souza or pull out of the debate. Anything less is an endorsement of his disgusting comments.”
