Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum’s political career has been nurtured by one of the country’s most powerful socialists: San Francisco attorney Steve Phillips, a self-identified student of “Marx, Mao, and Lenin” who has worked closely with student radicals supportive of the Communist Party of China.
In fact, a group who has become a major force in Gillum’s campaign is also supportive of the communist leadership in China. In this same vein, Gillum also spent much of 2012 studying with a communist-led activist training school based in California.
Gillum, who is currently polling six points ahead of his conservative Republican opponent Ron DeSantis, could become Florida’s next governor.
Phillips is the power behind Gillum. Author of “Brown Is the New White,” Phillips has made it his mission to support progressive candidates of color for high office. This strategy, according to Phillips, will energize minority voters to vote, pushing hard-left candidates into positions of power.
Phillips has provided vast sums of money to Gillum, who shares his hard-left ideological perspective.
