(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) — Andrew Gillum, the defeated 2018 Democratic Florida gubernatorial candidate, is joining CNN as a political commentator.
Gillum said in a tweet he was “thrilled” to announce his new job.
Gillum is the latest former politico to be snatched up by the cable news network as a talking head, including former Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who was termed out of the office in January. CNN has hired ex-Reps. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., and Mia Love, R-Utah. Gutierrez declined to seek re-election last year, while Love lost her disputed race last November to her Democratic challenger by fewer than 700 votes.
