Gillum, Andrew D. (DEM) Andrew Gillum is running for Governor to rebuild Florida into a state that works for all of us. He knows everyone deserves good-paying jobs so they can support their families. He wants to protect and expand Floridians’ access to quality, affordable healthcare, especially people with pre-existing conditions. He knows we need to strengthen our public schools and end the culture of high-stakes testing.

 Graham, Gwen  (DEM) Gwen believes it’s time for government to care about people again and to put Florida families first. She knows that by working together, we can bring common sense back to Tallahassee and make our state work for us      


King, Thomas Christopher (DEM)  New Leadership and Fresh Ideas “Too many Floridians have been left out and left behind, and that’s because our one-party state government can’t innovate. There is no incentive in Tallahassee to think big. I believe that it was traditional political experience that got us into this mess, and it will be fresh ideas and new leadership that will get us out of it. Join this campaign if you’re ready to be part of something big, bold, and better.”
