Democrat Andrew Gillum announced Saturday he was conceding his hard-fought race for Florida governor to his Republican rival, Ron DeSantis, vowing to keep fighting until he wins an election. "This has been the journey of our lives".
'We know that this fight continues, in spite of the outcome of this election'.
Congratulations to Andrew Gillum on having run a really tough and competitive race for Governor of the Great State of Florida.
Gillum had conceded to DeSantis on election night, but retracted it after the margin between the two candidates narrowed. But he still trailed DeSantis by more than 30,000 votes following a legally required machine recount. More than 8 million voters cast ballots in the race. But Gillum later withdrew that concession when the results were close enough for an automatic recount. His term as Tallahassee mayor ends next week.
