Andrew Gillum calls it quits, endorses Rod Smith for Democratic chair

2

December

With Rod Smith having commitments essentially locking up his election for Florida Democratic chairman, challenger Andrew Gillum today is calling it quits and getting aboard the Rod train:

"Rod Smith is committed to delivering the reforms that the Florida Democratic Party needs to win elections, which is why I am proud to offer him my support," said Gillum. "My candidacy was always about moving Florida forward, which required a serious dialogue about how we motivate our base, build our infrastructure, and recruit the next generation of Florida Democrats. We will make these reforms, and we will win elections."
