RPOF Releases New Ads “Unfit to Lead” Exposing Andrew Gillum’s Failure on Hurricane Response

TALLAHASSEE, FL- The Republican Party of Florida today launched two new ads titled “Unfit to Lead.” The 30-second ads, which will air statewide beginning today, expose Andrew Gillum’s systemic failure when Hurricane Hermine caused massive power outages in Tallahassee in 2016. To view the ads, click on the images below.

 

Unfit to Lead 1: Kathryn

 

Ad Transcription:

After the Hurricane, we had no electricity for over a week.

Utility companies lined up trucks to restore power.

But as mayor, Andrew Gillum refused help from workers.

The trucks just sat, while people suffered.

Incompetence, or extreme politics, I don't know. But leaders are supposed to help people in tough times.

And Andrew Gillum, he didn't help us. He failed us.

 

Unfit to Lead 2: Allison

Ad Transcription:

My son was diagnosed with complex autism.

High temperatures typically cause health complications for children like him, that require special licensed facilities.

After the hurricane, they lost power, and should have been first-restored.

They begged Mayor Andrew Gillum for help, but Gillum turned away workers who could have restored our power. It was devastating.

Pure politics or bad judgement, Andrew Gillum failed us, and we'll never forget.
