Andrew Gillum to Hold ‘Count Every Vote’ Rally at Broward County Church Sunday Evening

One day after un-conceding the election, defeated Democrat candidate for Florida governor Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum will hold a rally at a Broward County church Sunday evening sponsored by leftist political groups in support of the recount efforts that could upend the election day victory of Republican candidate Ron DeSantis. The rally is being called, “Count Every Vote: A Faith Response to the Florida Recount”.

Gillum rescinded his election-night concession in an address to the media Saturday.

Gillum will be the first major candidate involved in Florida’s statewide mandatory recounts to hold an event to agitate supporters. DeSantis has issued a video statement but made no public appearances. Senate candidate Republican Gov. Rick Scott has spoken to the press and done interviews while Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson has issued a statement and a video. The Agriculture commissioner race is also under a mandatory recount but is not as controversial as the governor or Senate races.


The Gillum rally will be held at 5 p.m. EST at the New Mount Olive Baptist Church in Fort Lauderdale. It is co-sponsored by several leftist groups including the Dream Defenders, SEIU and the NAACP.
