Sanders: Gillum will work to provide health-care for all through a Medicare-for-All program
(SUNSHINE STATE NEWS) – With less than a month to go until the Democratic gubernatorial primary, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum reeled in a major endorsement on Wednesday as U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., backed him.
Sanders, a socialist who ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016 and who has opened the door to another bid in 2020, threw his support to Gillum on Wednesday morning.
“I’m proud to endorse Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum in his race for governor of Florida,” Sanders said. “As governor, Andrew Gillum will work to provide health-care for all through a Medicare-for-All program, raise the minimum wage to a living wage, invest in sustainable energy, improve education, make sure the wealthiest corporations pay their fair share of taxes, and be welcoming to immigrants. Andrew has never backed down from a fight, including beating the NRA and standing up against xenophobic politicians. Andrew Gillum will set a new course for Florida — a governor who represents all the people and not just powerful special interests.”
