The Florida governor lost a key person in his reelection effort when billionaire healthcare CEO Mike Fernandez abruptly quit Thursday, and indicated that racism on the staff played a big part in his resignation.

Fernandez began expressing his frustrations at least a month ago when he sent an email to top Scott allies and complained about two campaign aides who had joked around in a cartoon-style Mexican accent en route to a Mexican restaurant in Fernandez’s home town of Coral Gables.

Fernandez, who is Cuban, wouldn’t comment about the email.
