From the Grassroots to the Ballot Box: How Gubernatorial Candidate Andrew Gillum Won in Florida

After progressive candidate Andrew Gillum pulled off a stunning upset in Florida’s Democratic primary for governor Tuesday, putting him on a path to become the state’s first African-American governor, he was attacked within hours by his Republican opponent—handpicked by Trump—who warned voters not to “monkey this up” by supporting Gillum. Even Fox said they they don’t condone his comments. DN! speaks with two activists who’ve worked with Gillum: Phillip Agnew with Dream Defenders in Florida and Charlene Carruthers, head of Black Youth Project 100 and author of the new book “Unapologetic: A Black, Queer, and Feminist Mandate for Radical Movements.”
