How shitty are Florida Republicans? This shitty: “Ron DeSantis and the Florida GOP are launching their toughest attack ad yet against Andrew Gillum, surely raising eyebrows and questions about the tastefulness of attacking the mayor of a city as a monster hurricane is poised to hit his region.”

To be clear, the ad is running in the Florida panhandle, in the area that is in the middle of the storm. Gillum has called for a cease and desist, saying “I again would encourage my opponent to just subside with the politics.”

Former FEMA Director Craig Fugate had a strong rebuke to DeSantis and the state Republicans, which paid for this ad. “I would encourage all Florida Candidates running for office to use this time to help raise funds for the @RedCross @SalArmyEDS @TeamRubicon and others part of the @NationalVOAD,” he tweeted.

On Tuesday, DeSantis blew off questions about his attack ads running in the middle of the catastrophe. “You run your campaign the way you run your campaign. It is what it is,” he said. “We’ve had all this planned out long before and we’re going to stick with our plan so people will see that unfold in the next day or two.”

Deplorable.
