Florida Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis says perhaps his Democratic opponent should be impeached as Tallahassee mayor over ethics questions.

DeSantis criticized his Democratic opponent, Andrew Gillum, at length Wednesday at a Florida rally featuring President Donald Trump.

He brought up an ongoing ethics investigation involving Gillum. Gillum has asserted he paid his way on trips to Costa Rica and New York City, but newly released documents appear to contradict the Tallahassee mayor.

Gillum has steadfastly denied any wrongdoing in the ethics probe, which is separate but related to an ongoing FBI investigation into city government.

DeSantis said maybe Gillum should be impeached.

That prompted the crowd to chant, "Lock him up! Lock him up!"

The chant echoed Trump rallies in 2016 when supporters shouted "Lock her up!" against Trump's Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.
