    Need to keep my eye on Tallahassee donors and if they are a business I can use, I go to their competitor.

    How much are we paying Sean Pittman to “lobby” across the street? Well, $45K of it got “laundered” into the campaign.

    That’s how the wheels get greased.

    About 50 percent of his voters will come from outside of Florida.

    It is a good thing outside money can’t always buy elections. If anyone is “on the fence”, which none of us are, all we need to know is that Gillum is supported by george soros and jane fonda, both of whom are poison to America, not to mention all of the other contributors.

    Gillum is an obama-wanna-be and Soros puppet. The man’s entire existence is devoted to two things only: his political ambition and increasing his personal fortune. In his world, as in all Liberals, there is no right or wrong, no truth or lies – there is only what gets the job done (ask Hillary & obama, they are masters of the process). Gillum’s tenure as Tallahassee’s mayor is rife with collusion and illicit city dealings with cronies, lies and obfuscation when pressed for facts, and lost lawsuits resulting from corrupt practices. Any future office Gillum hold will have a similar sad resume.

    Gillum should be kept as far away from any political position (including dog catcher) as possible. Think how much better off America would be today if voters had only stopped obama before he (questionably) became a U.S. president. The least we can do in FL is prevent Gillum from attaining another political stairstep,
    despite Soros money and donations from America-hating Hollywood halfwits.
