Andrew Gillum Concedes Florida Governor’s Race: ‘This Has Been the Journey of Our Lives’

It is over.

On Saturday, Democratic hopeful Andrew Gillum conceded the Florida governor’s race to Republican opponent, former Rep. Ron DeSantis.

Gillum’s concession came via a Facebook video.

After pointing out that their goal was to make sure that every vote got counted, Gillum said the process is coming to an end and congratulated DeSantis.

“R.J. and I wanted to take a moment to congratulate Mr. DeSantis on becoming the next governor of the great state of Florida,” Gillum says in the video. “This has been the journey of our lives.”

Earlier today, President Donald Trump congratulated Gillum for running “a really tough and competitive race.”

The president also congratulated DeSantis on Friday, one day before Gillum’s concession video was published.
