Florida Governor: Andrew Gillum & Chris King
Florida Governor: Andrew Gillum and Chris King
Action Alliance for Progress Endorsement 2018
Gillum and King are the embodiment of a new generation of pragmatic progressives who can counteract the entrenched power and corruption that have battered Florida for the past 20 years of Republican governorship.
While their opponents run hard to the right to court a Republican base that has adopted the politics of fear and bigotry, Gillum and King have well-conceived ideas to address the needs of Florida’s working class families and to make a stand against corporate greed.
As mayor of Tallahassee, Gillum developed a thriving innovation economy, beat the gun lobby in court, reduced violent crime, and stood up to President Trump and Governor Rick Scott to defend immigrants.
In the private sector, Chris King built a successful business creating quality, affordable housing for seniors and families in Florida and across the Southeast.
Their progressive ideals, youthful enthusiasm, and capabilities as communicators promise to establish Florida as a model of responsible and transparent government.
Action Alliance for Progress enthusiastically endorses Andrew Gillum for governor and Chris King for lieutenant governor.
