'I’m my own man': is Trump’s blessing also a curse for Florida's Ron DeSantis?

DeSantis wants voters to know he is more than just Trump’s guy as he engages in a vicious fight with leftwinger Andrew Gillum for the governor’s race

Ron DeSantis, the Republican candidate for Florida governor whose campaign ad features him building a border wall of toy blocks with his toddler daughter, then reading The Art of the Deal to his baby son as a bedtime story, wants you to know he’s more than just Donald Trump’s guy in the sunshine state.

“I’m my own man, I have a record on different things,” DeSantis insisted at a recent stump event in Doral at which he praised the president for everything from low unemployment, a booming economy and tax cuts to fighting terrorism in the Middle East, withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal and standing up to dictators such as Venezuela’s Nicolas Maduro and Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua.
