People for the American Way Endorses Mayor Andrew Gillum for Governor


People For the American Way’s Next Up Victory Fund announced its endorsement of Andrew Gillum for Governor of Florida. The Next Up Victory Fund supports young progressive candidates forty and under running for state and local office across the country.

Norman Lear, People For the American Way founder, had this to say about Gillum:

 “I’ve met a lot of elected leaders in my 95 years, but I’ve met very few who had the wisdom, the courage and the vision of Andrew Gillum. Andrew’s tenacity and his passion for expanding opportunity for all people make me confident that our country’s best days are ahead of us. He will be an extraordinary governor for Florida.”

Michael Keegan, People For the American Way president, was also had kind words to say:

 “PFAW’s Next Up Victory Fund is proud to endorse Andrew Gillum for Florida Governor. Andrew is a champion for working families and has a proven track record of fighting for the rights of all people no matter where they come from or who they love. After Donald Trump’s victory, it is more important than ever to elect leaders who will fight against his divisive policies. Andrew has already demonstrated his willingness to stand up to President Trump in order to protect immigrant communities. I’ve known and worked with Andrew for years and had the chance to see his values and his hard work up close. His commitment to creating good-paying jobs for all Floridians, protecting and expanding access to health care, and investing in social service programs will move Florida forward.”

 People For the American Way is a progressive advocacy organization founded to fight right-wing extremism and defend constitutional values including free expression, religious liberty, equal justice under the law, and the right to meaningfully participate in our democracy.
