When he ran for governor, Andrew Gillum got 4 million votes. Now he’s launched a campaign, but it’s not for president. It’s for Florida voter registrations.
Gillum has launched a voter registration campaign in Florida, the country’s largest swing state, to try and defeat President Donald Trump in the 2020 MAGA bid for re-election.
Gillum has named his voter registration campaign Bring it Home Florida, the signature slogan in his 2018 campaign for Florida governor. The former Tallahassee mayor lost to now-Gov. Ron DeSantis by 0.41 percentage points.
Rather than run for president himself, Gillum said he’ll be focusing on increasing the number of voters in the state. Thanks to the passage of
Florida’s Amendment 4, 1.4 million people with felony convictions had their voting rights restored as of Jan. 8.
