Barack Obama To Visit Georgia And Florida To Support Stacey Abrams And Andrew Gillum
Coming to a city near (some of) you!
Former President Barack Obama is hitting the campaign trail to help out gubernatorial candidates Stacey Abrams and Andrew Gillum win in their respective states.
Obama will visit Georgia to support Abrams on Friday, reports The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The former POTUS will appear Morehouse College's Forbes Arena around 5 p.m. People who are interested in attending can pick up two free tickets each from 2 p.m. to 5.pm. at various locations in Metro Atlanta.
Obama will be in Miami, Florida to stump for Gillum on the same day, according to The Sun-Sentinel. Details about that visit will be posted later.
Gillum released a statement thanking the 44th president for his solidarity.
“I’m proud and humbled to have President Obama, my friend and a true patriot, on the campaign trail here in Florida,” Gillum said. “With President Obama’s help, we’re going to bring it home for Florida this November.”
The trips very nearly overlap with President Trump’s campaign trips to Florida and Georgia on behalf of GOP candidates. Trump will be Fort Myers, Florida to support Gillum’s opponent Ron DeSantis on Wednesday. He will visit Macon, Georgia on Sunday to rally for Abram’s foe Brian Kemp.
