Andrew Gillum announced he will resume his campaign Thursday and will not attend the first debate that was set for Wednesday, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
His campaign was suspended after Hurricane Michael that hit the Florida Panhandle last week, where Gillum is mayor of Tallahassee.
“In times like these, campaigning has to take a backseat to governing. My job is to keep our community safe and ensure Tallahassee recovers as quickly and fully as possible,” Gillum told the Times.
