Biden for President Co-Chair Cedric Richmond Responds to DeSantis Comments on Slavery

After Ron DeSantis defended Florida’s new curriculum, Biden for President campaign co-chairman Congressman Cedric Richmond released the following statement:

“Here’s what’d I say: I think Ron DeSantis needs another campaign reset already if he wants any shot at resonating with mainstream voters. His comments supporting the idea that slavery had its benefits for enslaved people are disgusting. Still, they’re also a symptom of the extremism that’s infected the Republican presidential candidates. There’s no debate over slavery. It wasn't perfect, with zero redeeming qualities. Not a single Republican candidate has condemned this effort to rewrite history. Not a single Republican candidate has any business running this country.”
