With a crowd of supporters cheering him on, Andrew Gillum cast his ballot for governor of Florida this morning at Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Tallahassee, FL.
Gillum paused to speak with reporters after casting his vote from himself in Florida’s closely watched gubernatorial race. He joked that he tried to look at his wife, R. Jai Gillum, to see what she was doing in her booth and she confirmed that she voted for him as well.
Gillum also spoke to the crowd about the issues that caused him to run for office and said his message to Trump and DeSantis is clear, “The politics of hatred and separation have come to an end.”
“Us winning tonight, I think, will send a message to Mr. Trump, and Mr. DeSantis, as well, that the politics of hatred, of division, of separation, that they’ve come to an end … people are going out, they’re voting for something, and not against.”
