I guess all of the reporting that he was a resident of south Florida are fake news. Sheesh.

Andrew Gillum.

Born, raised and educated.

I’m just saying. We’ve got a lot of good coming out of this state too.

to residents of Florida, I hold Mr. Gillum in much higher esteem than to refer to him as a bumbling, pejorative "Florida man".

As a resident of a red state I find posts on how everyone in a red state "deserves" whatever heinous shit republicans rain down on them, tiresome. However, I generally choose not to kill those posters' buzzes. It was not my intent to impugn all adult males in the state of Florida, only those whose misfortune is generally self-inflicted and frequently begins with the phrase "hold my beer". I assume that not to include those who frequent this site. Forgive me if I was incorrect.

I agree with Tommy this shit gets really old when DUers think it soooo much fun to make fun of other people because of the state they live in.

WEIRD obsession!

and I have complete confidence that Tommy can defend himself if he feels it's necessary. Your suggestion that I implied some purist state is a red herring and indicates you didn't read my last reply to Tommy. None of us is perfect, for instance some have skin that may not be of sufficient thickness. This is a silly thing to get worked up about, I suggest that everyone just go about trying to enjoy a Saturday. Peace all.
