Orlando Sentinel: recuento de Florida: Andrew Gillum insiste en "contar cada voto" en su discurso ante la iglesia de Orlando

Una pieza del 13 de noviembre del Orlando Sentinel cubrió los discursos de Andrew Gillum y otros en la iglesia de St. Mark AME, y llamó a los partidarios a ayudar con el proceso de recuento.

Orlando Sentinel cubrió el discurso de Andrew Gillum en el evento Faith in Florida, "Count Every Vote: A Faith Response to the Florida Recount". 

Gillum y su abogado, Barry Richard, han dicho que no descartarían los litigios, y Gillum se refirió a los combates durante las próximas "semanas" en su discurso. Sin embargo, un recuento que revierte un margen tan grande como el de Gillum ha sido poco frecuente.

Pero, dijo, "no tenemos lujo, ninguno de nosotros tiene el lujo de retirarse. Sabemos que hay problemas en el sistema electoral. ... Si tenemos que ser honestos, hubo personas que corrieron estas carreras antes de que yo también supiera que había problemas. Pero una vez que el martillo cayó y se tomó la decisión, nos retiramos. Todos, no podemos retirarnos esta vez ".

También habló del cinismo que él y otros han escuchado de algunos miembros de la comunidad afroamericana sobre el voto.

"Muchos de nosotros tuvimos que mirar a esa persona en la peluquería, el salón de belleza o fuera de la tienda de comestibles, tal vez en un banco sentado a tu lado", dijo Gillum. “[Esa es] la verdadera farsa de la privación de voto de los votantes, su legado. "No solo los individuos que se presentaron para votar y que tenían perros saltaron sobre ellos, les abrieron mangueras contra incendios".
