FloridaPolitics.com has recently reported on comments made by Mayor Andrew Gillum on The Breakfast Club, a popular radio show that “enjoys a premium throne in the realm of hip-hop media.”
The show is syndicated throughout the country and airs in 50-plus U.S. markets, including Florida stations in Miami, West Palm Beach, Tampa, Central Florida, Jacksonville, Tallahassee and Pensacola.
The report included this passage:
The Tallahassee mayor went through the whole gamut, talking education, voting rights restoration, marijuana legalization and immigration reform. He also discussed the election of President Donald Trump, hypothesizing it has “awoken a giant in a lot of people who previously thought ‘maybe my vote doesn’t matter maybe [politicians] are all just alike.’”
Then, before a national audience, Gillum continued, “We now have a president that is unabashedly racist.
Would we not be better off if we were to rewrite elections law to allow for OPEN PRIMARIES?
It seems to me that it would be a very helpful tool for ‘draining the swamp.”
PLEASE. SOMEONE RUN FOR GOVERNOR AS A DEMOCRAT.
we need real democrats not ……….Gwen Graham, Philip Levine, Thomas Christopher King or even Andrew Gillum, sorry ….if these are the choices come August 28, 2018………..I will not waste the $ to mail my ballot in from our summer home in Tecumseh, Michigan…………..and when November 6, 2018 gets here I will not vote for the nominee if someone else does not attempt to beat the Honorable Republican.
Please continue with your bashing of Andrew Gillum……he needs to drop out and so does the other 3 candidates.
This BS debate on February 13 is a terrible way to tell real democrats of your plan to make Florida better.
Make Highway Safety the Issue.
At least we can agree that this will cut into Insurance company profits….
onballot.com look at the reasons on the bottom of opening page.
Sorry, I don’t believe ANY democrat can stop Adam Putnam………..only Adam Putnam can stop out of control Ron DeSantis from district 6 …he would have been on our District 6 ballot again…but see even his Republican folks are not very happy with him.
Volusia County will decide the gubernatorial election. I believe that the Republican will win if Democrats do not get better candidates.
We have lived in Florida since 1978 and our two sons born in Orange Park SW of Jacksonville, MY point is why would any democrat still existing in Jacksonville would vote for Levine? He only had 5000 votes to be Mayor of Miami Beach, Gwen Graham has already lived in the Governor’s Mansion and has too conservative ideas to be a democrat. YOU know more about Gillum than I do…just don’t believe he will be the nominee.
The approach Gillum has taken to get noticed clearly shows he is not going to win the primary.
My name is going to be on the democratic party ballot as a PROTEST.
I supported Bernie Sanders because of DWS and Hillary actions not because I need a Liberal………..I am against the democrats who still believe Trump did not win. My opinion of Trump is not important he is not on the Ballot (other than his out of State support for Ron DeSantis)
By law republicans can only be listed at the top of ALL ballots in Florida…democrats therefore are 10 percent short even before the first vote.
REPEAL Chapter 106
The next Governor will have a very tough job because voters are getting hot under the collar and this could mean….issues that are not even known to show up.
Oh, what will happen when Trump has his military parade…will the military be authorized to drive over me?????? What a waste of money to damage a good tank with my body parts in the tracks. That is my only comment on current events…NO military parade…………tanks will damage the pavement.
Please Republicans don’t allow Trump to waste OUR tax money….leave that up to the democrats.
I DON’T HAVE ONE WORD THAT COULD CHANGE ONE WORD OF THESE POSTING INDIVIDUALS;
1. I AM MORE DETERMINED THAN EVER TO FIND $7816.38 TO PLACE MY NAME AT THE TOP OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY BALLOT FOR GOVERNOR
2. I RAN IN 2006 AS INDEPENDENT; I HAD 73,299 VOTES IN 2016 FOR STATE SENATE. THIS IS REALLY NOT ABOUT ME….!!!! THIS IS ABOUT THE 4 BAD DEMOCRATIC PARTY CANDIDATES.
3. I HAVE TO FIRST PUT DOWN 3 PALLETS OF SOD ON MY BACK YARD TO REPAIR THE DAMAGE THAT WILL MAKE MY WIFE HAPPY. THEN I WILL WORK MY BUDGET AGAIN TO FIND $7816.38 BY JUNE 20, 2018.
I AM YELLING BECAUSE I AM SO UNHAPPY WITH THESE DEMOCRATS. RICHARD

Pathetic Andy,such an embarrassment to Tallahassee. Gillum is by definition a race baiter:
One who seeks to divide and/or inflame a racial group against others, often for personal aggrandizement or for political advantage.
Da Comrade, your comments make the Red State happy!
Speaking of racist, I wonder what Gillum has to say about the locations of all the new “safety cameras” the city has just installed? They’re all concentrated in a black neighborhood just west of FAMU:
The link says they are not being monitored 24-7…then what’s the point?
Cameras are racist.
they were installed in locations that had proportionally larger than normal calls for service.
Please. .Africa is a shithole…a judge with a Hispanic name can’t sit on his University scam case…his chief of staff invents a speech by an African American Congress woman that local Miami tv happened to record that showed he was completely wrong, his primary benefactors…the Russian oligarchs sponsor a global white nationalist movement…it’s ok trumpsters, it’s great and patriotic to be rascists and reclaim the true place of the white male….why do you support all of this but complain about being characterized as rascists…go ahead and embrace it, you might be less angry
Sadly for now at least, we have a Mayor who is unabashedly bought and paid for by Soros and his communist creeps. He needs to get off the public payroll and earn a paycheck, it would do him some good. These type of comments are just so unprofessional and uncalled for, and he knows it. It seems he is willing to do and say anything to advance his public payroll career.
You sound like a lie.
We now have a gubernatorial candidate who is unabashedly PAC funded by donors primarily from New York and California.
Gillum is a sellout to out-of-state elitists!
In what universe does anyone defend the Racist In Chief?
who would disagree with what the mayor has said here?
The universe of sane people support him. Where have you been this past year. President Trump supports the United States where from Jan. 20, 2009 until Jan. 19, 2017 our president did not.
that’s insane to say comrade, you and your fellow ruskeys having fun on Tallahassee Reports?
No ideas or solutions for anything? Play the race card! We all know andy’s game. Meanwhile violent shootings, robberies,corruption, and a looming FBI investigation all continue in Tallahassee. Nice job, andy.
Seems to me Corey was targeted by the FBI because that’s where the smelliest stink was coming from.
And I believe he’s flipped, for leniency (ala Sammy the Bull) and that’s why Gillum cut him off. Releasing the football text to the local rag was prolly the last straw, IMHO. The Usual Suspects were caught red-handed there and even Shelley couldn’t get them out of that whopper.
And keep hammering away, Junior!
Delusional Andy empty barrels make a lot of inconsequential NOISE! Throwing BFF Adam Corey under the BUS to save your A$$ will most certainly come back to bite you before the 2018 mid term elections when FBI & US Attorney issues indictments! Be prepared to withdraw from the farce and sham of you wanting to excel to a higher office! Your political CAREER is OVER! Believe you are very much aware that you will never have a legacy in Tallahassee but only will be remembered as a scurrilous opportunist light-weight who has NO significant DONORS but Soros and he only threw you CRUMBS!
Don’t let the rotten child in Andy’s twisted – lefty liberal – stink for brains head get you riled up my good honest, USA loving, hard working citizens.
Andy’s just practicing his hate speak rhetoric in anticipation of becoming Governor of the Haters Gang in Federal prison.
C’mon FBI…shake a leg…chop chop…get up off the comfy couch and Indict already!!!
We could all use some relief from this embarrassing fool here in The Capitol City!!!
‘Racist’ is the code word for, we have no valid arguments.
Most have known for quite some time that Andrew Gillum is “unabashedly” focused on identity politics, race baiting, victimhood, and jedi level shame dealing, as his best strategy to pursue higher elected office.
Thanks for the reminder Andy.
Are you planning on banking more campaign contributions from George and Alex?
Love your comment on Gillum’s Ridiculous accusation! You are right on target and the truth about him could not have been said any better
Says the nazi collaborator
