He's for working people, touting health care, & very smart guy who has already served as Mayor of Tallahassee.Some of his opponents(DeSantis) on the first day after Gillum won, used a racial slur to describe Gillum's candidacy.(said he "shouldn't come in here "monkeying" things up).
Many folks, myself included, took that as a derogatory reference. Gillum will not get in the mud for that. DeSantis is a Trump clone. Gillum has worked hard all his life. Google him for background. If you live in Florida, check him out. He's our best chance in this state who will give a voice to the voiceless & look out for seniors & medicare. thx.
I saw a YouTube clip of Gillium on the Breakfast Club. I was totally impressed, particularly his discussions on policing and solar energy. As a HBCU grad, I am proud that he is a FAMU grad.
