Everybody across the country is talking about Florida because Florida is a key state when it comes to elections. I got this story from two sources! Diddy, Rick Ross and Bernie Sanders are endorsing Andrew Gillum for Governor. Andrew is the Mayor of Tallahassee and had a group of supporters swarm into Florida to help him win. The United States is watching this race closely. 

Andrew Gillum is on the verge of making history. Gillum, 39, is the mayor of Tallahassee, a husband, a father of three, a FAMU grad– and he’s vying to be the Democratic candidate in Florida’s gubernatorial race. If he wins the general election, he’d be the first Black Governor in the state’s history. For the son of a construction worker and a school bus driver, it’s a classic tale of the American dream, and a new chapter in Gillum’s ambitious political career (he became the youngest person elected to Tallahassee’s City Commission when he was just 23-years-old).

Gillum, who was elected the first Black mayor of Tallahassee in 2014, pointed to the important endorsement from Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont Independent who inspired progressives in the 2016 Democratic presidential primary and nearly snatched victory from Hillary Clinton.
