Andrew Gillum Joins CNN
Former FL gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum is joining CNN as a Political Commentator. His recent meetings with former President Barack Obama and other Democratic donors fueled speculation of a possible presidential bid. He may not be on the 2020 trail, but he will certainly be an asset to whomever he ultimately endorses. Gillum boasts 70,000 supporters and organizers, more than one million cell phone numbers, and over one million email addresses. The news of the FAMU graduate joining CNN comes days after the Florida Commission on Ethics accused Gillum of violating the state's ethics laws -- including rental accommodations in Costa Rica, a boat ride to see the Statue of Liberty with undercover FBI agents and a lobbyist, and tickets to see the Broadway musical Hamilton in 2016. Gillum maintains he committed no wrongdoing. A state commission found probable cause late last week on five of six counts, meaning the case will proceed to an administrative law judge sometime in the next several weeks. More here.
