Gillum Campaign Statement on Debates

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.Today, Gillum for Governor communications director Geoff Burgan made the following statement on debates:

“We are pleased that Congressman DeSantis has accepted our offer of three debates. Florida voters deserve to hear from both Mayor Gillum and Congressman DeSantis about their plans for the Sunshine State, and we’re proud to move forward accordingly. We strongly encourage Congressman DeSantis to reconsider his rejection of the Univision debate, so we can get the Spanish-language debate on the books as soon as possible.”



  • The Gillum and DeSantis campaigns have both accepted debates with Leadership Florida (Broward College, Oct. 24) and CNN (Tampa).
  • The Gillum campaign accepted a Univision 23 debate (Miami) while the DeSantis campaign has refused to do so.
