Andrew Gillum Puts Governor Campaign On Hold To Clean Up Hurricane Michael Damage

Democratic Florida gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum attends a campaign rally where he received the endorsement of three major national, state and South Florida LGBT groups on September 24, 2018 in Miami, Florida.

Andrew Gillum, the current mayor of Tallahassee, Florida, as well as the state’s Democratic candidate for governor, found himself involved in another hectic schedule on Thursday, but it wasn’t due to campaign stops or any high profile meetings. Instead, Gillum put his campaign on hold as he helped the communities in the Florida panhandle that were ravaged by Hurricane Michael, cleaning up and clearing debris. There is even video of Gillum wielding a chainsaw in an effort to clear a street covered by fallen trees, according to reports by Business Insider.

Gillum is currently locked in one of the tightest gubernatorial races in the nation, running neck-and-neck with Republican candidate Ron DeSantis. If Gillum were to win come November, he would become Florida’s first black governor as well as the first Democrat in the position in 20 years.
