After Recount, Gillum Concedes Florida Governor Race to DeSantis

After Recount, Gillum Concedes Florida Governor Race to DeSantis

After a strenuous recount process that ended Thursday, Democrat Andrew Gillum has thrown in the towel and conceded the Florida governor’s race to Republican Ron DeSantis, making DeSantis Florida’s governor-elect.

DeSantis defeated Gillum by 33,683 votes, or 0.41 percentage points.

Gillum, who withdrew his Nov. 6th concession to DeSantis once the election went to an automatic recount, released an official statement on Facebook saying, “We said we would fight until the last vote is counted.

Gillum, who serves as Tallahassee’s mayor, also congratulated Governor-elect DeSantis and thanked his running mate, Chris King, on Twitter Saturday evening.

We could not be more thankful to my running mate, @ChrisKingFL and his wife Kristen.”
