Andrew Gillum Addresses Donors, Stokes 2020 ‘Buzz’

Failed Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum sparked new speculation of a potential 2020 run for the White House yesterday; addressing nearly 300 high-powered Democratic donors in Washington DC.

“Florida Democrat Andrew Gillum is set to address top Democratic Party donors gathered in Washington amid speculation he’s considering a 2020 presidential bid,” writes NBC News. “Party officials confirm Gillum is the surprise speaker at a closed gathering of about 300 donors huddling Tuesday in a Washington hotel.”

Gillum was defeated in November by Republican Ron DeSantis, but is widely regarded as a future star among Democratic politicians; exciting the liberal base of the party.

“Despite his loss in the governor’s race to Republican Ron DeSantis, Gillum is among the young Democratic Party liberals who excited party activists nationally,” adds NBC.

The Democratic National Committee’s finance gathering includes major donors from the 2018 midterms and former donors that party leaders hope will re-emerge as key financial supporters. The DNC is trying to narrow its sizable fundraising deficit with the Republican National Committee at the same time that an unusually large group of potential presidential candidates competes for the limited resources among top donors on the left.

Gillum Rescinds Concession in Florida Race; Taunts Trump on Twitter

Tensions are rising in the Florida gubernatorial race, with Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum rescinding his concession and telling an audience in Ft. Lauderdale, “You better count every vote.”

Gillum initially conceded last Tuesday, but has since reversed course, saying,””I am replacing my words of concession with an uncompromising and unapologetic call that we count every single vote.”

Gillum’s announcement came just hours after the Florida Secretary of State announced a recount in the gubernatorial, senate and agriculture commissioner races.

As it currently stands, GOP candidate Ron DeSantis leads Gillum, 49.59 percent to 49.18 percent.

Republicans have expressed serious concerns over the Broward County supervisor of elections, Brenda Snipes, who has a history of illegally destroying ballots, losing ballots and allowing illegal immigrants and felons to vote.

Consider this breakdown from Breitbart of some of Snipes’  questionable or downright illegal behavior:

  • In 2017, Dr. Snipes admitted in court that her office had allowed non-citizens and felons to vote and was particularly vulnerable ahead of major elections.
  • In 2012, a Broward elections official complained about Snipes tendency to “find” additional ballots in close elections. Ilene Lieberman, a Broward County Commissioner and Canvassing board member, told the Miami CBS affiliate in 2012, “When the canvassing board recessed on Saturday we were basically told there were between 150 and 165 ballots remained to be counted, that they had to double check, that they hadn’t been counted before. And when we came back on Monday the report showed 963 new ballots.”
  • Snipes also presided over a “phantom voting district” of 2000 voters who were using illegal addresses, many of them at a UPS Store, claimed as their places of residence.
  • Republican Party officials sued Snipes’ office in 2016 over the illegal counting of 180,000 mail in ballots, she admitted that she didn’t know the meaning of the word “canvassing.” Snipes’ office had been opening ballots illegally, without the legally required participation of other members of the canvasing board.

President Trump took to Twitter today and said the elections should be called for Republican Ron DeSantis for Governor and Republican Rick Scott for Senate, citing “massively infected” ballots.

“The Florida Election should be called in favor of Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in that large numbers of new ballots showed up out of nowhere, and many ballots are missing or forged,” he wrote.  “An honest vote count is no longer possible-ballots massively infected. Must go with Election Night!”

Gillum taunted the President, responding on the Twitter, “You sound nervous.”
