Florida Faith leaders are condemning voter intimidation efforts. They ask Gov. Ron DeSantis to do the same. Faith in Public Life's Matt Dailey says voter intimidation shouldn't be tolerated.

"These issues are faith issues. That's because someone in our area, one of our neighbors, is being harassed. It's something that we have to respond to as people of faith," Dailey says.

Dailey says his group has heard reports of voters in cities around Florida receiving threatening emails or otherwise being intimidated. He and other faith leaders will host a zoom meeting Saturday, calling for a stop to those threats.
