Mayor Gillum to Debate Speaker Corcoran on Immigration Ad Denounced as “Racist” and “Fear Mongering”

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.The Gillum for Governor campaign released the following statement today from Geoff Burgan, Communications Director:

“Speaker Corocran finally agreed to defend his ‘racist’ and ‘fear mongering’ TV ad in a live debate against Mayor Gillum, the most outspoken critic of the ad and the most progressive candidate for Florida Governor. Mayor Gillum stood up to Speaker Corcoran because he believes in a welcoming and safe Florida for all people —as opposed to Corocran’s Florida, where immigrants are depicted on TV as murderers.”
