Andrew Gillum (marxist party) has now officially conceded the race for Florida governor to Republican Ron DeSantis, 11 days after the election.
Plagued by recount covfefe and recount covfefe, where DeSantis and senate candidate Rick Scott seemingly gained votes, despite every trick in the book to stuff the ballot boxes for the democrats, Gillum has now finally thrown in the towel.
Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum conceded Florida’s governor’s race on Saturday as a recount of ballots neared its end, and the Democrat congratulated Republican former Congressman Ron DeSantis on becoming the state’s next governor.
“This has been the journey of our lives. We’ve been so honored by the support that we’ve received,” Gillum said in a video statement. “We know that this fight continues, in spite of the outcome of this election.”
Gillum posted a live video on Facebook on Saturday afternoon in which he congratulated DeSantis. Gillum had conceded to DeSantis on election night, but retracted it after the margin between the two candidates narrowed. The race went to a legally required recount, but after an initial machine recount DeSantis still led Gillum by more than 30,000 votes.
