MIAMI, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – Former President Barack Obama is coming to Florida to campaign for Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum, U.S. Senator Bill Nelson and other leading Democratic candidates in Miami at Ice Palace Films Studios Friday November 2nd, the Florida Democratic Party announced on Monday.
An Obama rally in Florida with Gillum was certainly no big surprise: the United States’ first black president campaigning with Florida’s first black major-party nominee.
Gillum Statement on Obama’s Visit
“I’m proud and humbled to have President Obama, my friend and a true patriot, on the campaign trail here in Florida,” Gillum said in a statement. “President Obama knows what’s at stake in this election – protections for people with pre-existing conditions, funding for public schools, and leadership to restore our environment.
“With President Obama’s help, we’re going to bring it home for Florida this November.”
