The all-important Florida gubernatorial primary is coming up on August 28 — and early voting is starting as early as August 13 in some areas. What does this mean? We don’t have a lot of time left to convince voters to vote for candidates in Florida who will push back on the status quo.
Bernie Sanders endorsed Andrew Gillum last week because he is clearly the most progressive candidate in the race for governor of Florida — and he needs our help now.
Andrew recently launched his very first TV ad — and he needs our help to make sure as many Floridians see it as possible. Click here to watch the ad, then pitch in to help Andrew win his primary on August 28.
The energy and momentum in Andrew Gillum’s campaign is real. The policies he supports — Medicare for All, a $15 minimum wage, criminal justice reform — are what Democracy for America members are fighting for across the country.
The fact is, Andrew Gillum is an incredibly inspiring candidate to those who know him and his campaign well. But he is running in a very crowded, messy primary. It’s going to take all of us getting the word out about Andrew’s bold progressive platform in order to give him a leg up. That’s why keeping this ad on the air is so important.
Andrew has taken on the NRA and beat them in court, and he’s taking them on again with the Parkland students and young people from across the state. And he is seeking justice for Markeis McGlockton, Trayvon Martin, and every other life taken with impunity by vigilantes with a gun in their hands by fighting to repeal Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law.
We need a real progressive as the next governor of Florida. That’s why we’re asking you to help us keep Andrew Gillum’s TV ad on the air during the homestretch of this campaign. Chip in $3 or more to help elect Andrew Gillum as Florida’s next governor now.
Thanks for being a part of the fight for more progressive leadership in Florida.
