Gov. Ricardo Rosselló announced Monday that he supports Andrew Gillum for governor of Florida while in Kissimmee the Associated Press reported.
The governor of Puerto Rico also endorsed Bill Nelson for senate due to his past position of equal rights for Puerto Rico and support for statehood, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
These candidates were endorsed over Gillum’s opponent Ron DeSantis and Bill Nelson’s competition current Florida governor, Rick Scott. Rosselló said that he did not dislike Scott but instead it was a tough choice.
“In no way, should one take this as a negative toward somebody. It’s a positive for somebody,” he said.
