Andrew Gillum bus tour cruising South Florida

Andrew Gillum GCS

Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum will take his rolling tour through at least three stops in South Florida Friday, campaigning with Democratic Florida Agriculture Commissioner candidate Nikki Fried and Democratic U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch, among others.

His campaign schedule has his bus tour hiting Coconut Creek in the morning, Boynton Beach in the afternoon and West Palm Beach in the afternoon, pushing a get-out-the-vote message in the Democratic-rich areas.

In West Palm Beach, he’ll wind up the day with a “Bring It Home” block party concert.

Gillum and Republican gubernatorial nominee Ron DeSantis head into the final weekend before next Tuesday’s Election Day.

In Coconut Creek, Gillum, Deutch, Fried and Fried will be joined by Wynmoor Village community leaders for a 10:30 appearance at Wynmoor Village.

In Boynton Beach, Gillum will be joined by state Sen. Lori Berman, state Rep. Al Jacquet and other local elected leaders and candidates at the Ezell Hester Center for a 5 p.m. rally.

In West Palm, Gillum will be joined by state Sen. Bobby Powell and local elected leaders and candidates at Gaines Park for a 7 p.m. rally before the party starts.
