Failed Democrat Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum met with former President Barack Obama in Washington, D.C., Tuesday amid talk that the progressive is considering a presidential run in 2020.
Details of their discussion are unclear, and representatives for the pair declined to comment. Obama had endorsed Gillum to be the next governor of Florida.
The meeting came as Gillum was in the nation’s capital to address the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights. Pressed during the event about a bid for the White House, Gillum replied, “What I am committed to doing between now and 2020 is doing everything I can to make the state of Florida available and winnable for the Democratic nominee for president.”
