Gillum Releases First Television Advertisement


Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum has released his first television advertisement titled What’s Impossible?

This comes after NextGen America released two advertisements on social media sites in support of Gillum.

In the 32-second advertisement, Gillum asks the viewers “What’s impossible? The son of a bus driver becoming mayor of the capital city, or that mayor standing up against the NRA so that guns couldn’t be fired in city parks and winning?”

He goes on to explain that “How about running for governor and being the most progressive Democrat, who would invest a billion dollars in education and create ‘Medicare for All’? Is it impossible to come from nothing, be outspent 10 to 1 and win? Share this, buy a TV ad and prove the impossible.”

In response to the advertisement, Gillum campaign spokesman Geoff Burgan commented that “Mayor Gillum has the progressive platform, track record and personal story to take Florida back in 2018, and this ad will communicate those messages to Florida Democrats. We’ve got all the momentum in this race, and we’re well-positioned to win in August and November.”

The advertisement is slated to run on cable throughout the sunshine state, which includes MSNBC and CNN.
