Democrat Andrew Gillum Makes History In Florida Gubernatorial Primary
Gillum is the first black gubernatorial nominee in the state of Florida.
Andrew Gillum is now the first black gubernatorial nominee in Florida's history after winning the state's Democratic primary election for Governor.
The Tallahassee mayor won the support of Sen. Bernie Sanders late in the game. Gillum beat out former Congresswoman and Democratic frontrunner Gwen Graham and five other candidates.
Gillum will face U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis in the November general election to replace Gov. Rick Scott. Scott has reached his term limit and is now running for Senator.
If Gillum wins in November, he'll make history again as the first black Florida Governor.
