Andrew Gillum picks up Broward County endorsement

Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum has picked up his first Broward County endorsement.

Gillum announced Wednesday that Broward County Commissioner Dale Holness has endorsed his 2018 gubernatorial bid. In a statement released by the Gillum campaign, Holness said Gillum has worked “tirelessly to lead Tallahassee in the right direction.”

“Andrew Gillum will work for increased prosperity for all Floridians by strengthening Florida’s economy, creating high-paying jobs and will build an advanced educational system by investing in early childhood and K-12 initiatives,” he said in a statement.” “Broward County and Florida deserve a champion in the next Governor and Andrew is the right choice at the right time. I am proud to endorse Mayor Andrew Gillum for Governor.”

Gillum, one of three Democrats currently running for governor, said he was proud to have Holness’ endorsement.

“We must address the persistent economic challenges that have plagued us for generations and gotten worse under Governor Rick Scott,” he said in a statement. “Dale has been at the forefront of the critical fight to create jobs, increase wages for working families, and provide access to affordable housing. As Governor, I look forward to bringing it home for Broward County.”

Democrats Gwen Graham and Chris King and Republican Adam Putnam are also running.
