Andrew Gillum slates Thursday fundraiser in Jacksonville

Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum is back in Northeast Florida, with media hits and fundraising pitches filling his Thursday stop in Jacksonville.

Gillum, who appears on WJCT’s First Coast Connect at 9 a.m., has a number of non-press events slated also.

Not the least of which, in terms of his campaign’s viability, a fundraiser in Downtown Jacksonville Thursday evening.

The latest First Coast Gillum fundraiser kicks off at 6 p.m. at the Jessie Ball DuPont Center downtown.

The event runs until 7:30 p.m., and ranges in contribution levels from a low number of $75 to a host committee slot at $250.

Gillum has engaged a lot of earned media, but as of the end of last month was well behind Democratic primary opponents Gwen Graham and Philip Levine in fundraising and cash on hand.
