Ron DeSantis vs Charlie Crist: Florida governor debate 2022 takeaways

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Democrat Charlie Crist faced each other on various issues during an hour-long debate.

It was the first and only debate of Florida's governor race on October 24.

The debate was full of fiery exchanges between the current governor and the former governor.

The two exchanged barbs over several controversial topics like abortion, immigration and Florida’s response to the pandemic.

Crist accused DeSantis of being focused on running for president in 2024.

One intense moment was when Crist asked DeSantis if he could promise voters he’d serve a full 4-year term if re-elected.

DeSantis continuously attacked Crist as a close ally to Biden, claiming his popularity is sagging in Florida.

DeSantis' reported net worth was $3,18,987 in 2021, while Charlie Crist's estimated net worth was $1.4 million in 2018.
