Tallahassee mayor Andrew Gillum (D) has conceded the Florida governor race. Again.
Democrat Andrew Gillum conceded Saturday to GOP challenger Ron DeSantis in their contentious race in Florida for the governor’s mansion.
The announcement from Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, came via a Facebook Live post made alongside his wife.
Gillum said he wanted “to congratulate Mr. DeSantis on becoming the next governor of the great state of Florida.”
Gillum also tweeted about his concession.
Most importantly, from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you for being part of this campaign. I wouldn’t be here without the support that was shown by millions of Floridians. I encourage y’all to keep fighting for what we believe in.
