TALLAHASSEE, Florida — Rihanna showed her support to Florida’s Democratic nominee for governor, Andrew Gillum, ahead of Tuesday’s midterm elections.
This marks Gullum’s second big endorsement as former President of The United States, Barack Obama, joined him on the campaign trail last week.
In her post via Instagram, Rihanna also urged Florida voters to cast ballots in favor of Amendment 4, which would restore voting rights to an estimated 1.4 million convicted felons in Florida who have completed their sentences, with the exception of people convicted of murder or sex offenses.
Gullum reposted the message, showing his appreciation. If elected, Gillum would be the first black governor of Florida. This

Much love & appreciation @badgalriri! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾 #Repost @badgalriri with @get_repost ・・・ FLORIDA: You have the opportunity to make history this election. The US has only had four black Governors in its entire history, and we can help make #AndrewGillum the next one and Florida’s first! If you’re tired of feeling like you don’t matter in the political process, know the most important thing you can do in supporting a candidate is finding someone who will take on critical issues such as: making minimum wage a livable wage, paying teachers what their worth, ensuring criminal justice reform, making healthcare a right, and repealing Stand Your Ground. That’s a platform we MUST support. Let’s #bringithome, Florida. Vote @andrewgillum. And VOTE YES on Amendment 4 to restore voting rights to folks who have already paid their debt to society. VOTE on November 6th!
