Failed Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum was involved in a suspected orgy today in which a man reportedly overdosed on crystal meth.
Blexit leader Candace Owens broke the story:
BREAKING: Democrat and Former FLORIDA Gubernatorial Candidate Andrew Gillum involved in a crystal meth overdose incident last night in a Miami hotel.

Gillum was reportedly partying at a Miami hotel when police had to be called regarding an overdose.
Police were called to the Mondrian South Beach Hotel on Friday morning. The Miami Beach Police Department reported that two men were found in the room, one of them being Gillum, who were under the influence of unnamed substances.
Gillum admitted that he was in the room but would not own up to being high on crystal meth.
“I was in Miami last night for a wedding celebration when first responders were called to assist one of my friends,” Gillum said in a statement. “While I had too much to drink, I want to be clear that I have never used methamphetamines. I apologize to the people of Florida for the distraction this has caused our movement.”
“I’m thankful to the incredible Miami Beach EMS team for their efforts. I will spend the next few weeks with my family and appreciate privacy during this time,” he added.
Officers claimed that Gillum was so inebriated that they could not have a coherent conversation with him. They also found three clear baggies likely containing crystal meth. Gillum was not arrested for his suspected role in the illicit gathering.
Gillum, who lost by a narrow margin to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in 2018, is considered a rising star in the Democrat Party:
Following his loss in November, Gillum kept his massive network of volunteers and activists together — much of it under a new non-profit called Bring it Home Florida — to form the core of an ambitious voter registration movement. He announced plans in March to register “or reengage” 1 million voters, and has since acted as the rainmaker and glue guy for a large collection of progressive-minded non-profits already going about the work of mobilizing voters.
Strategists in attendance in Orlando all pegged that registration effort as the foundation of the party’s strategy to end a string of narrow losses and reclaim Barack Obama’s successes in 2008 and 2012. And heading into 2020, Republicans and Democrats alike believe that Donald Trump can not survive a loss in Florida next November.
“Andrew is in a very interesting role, and I think he’s one of the folks in the state that can bring c3s and c4s together and the party to the table, and we all can sit and work together so we’re rowing in the same direction,” said Juan Peñalosa, executive director of the Florida Democratic Party…
If Gillum’s reception in Orlando is any indication, he continues to have the party’s activist wing behind him.
Danielle Thomas, an education activist from Orlando who volunteered for Gillum’s campaign last year, hugged him as he walked into his gathering in Orlando. He asked her about her parents. She told him it was good to see him again.
Thomas, who met Gillum while lobbying on education issues in the state capital, said she sometimes calls Gillum directly to talk, and they’ve already had conversations about the latest interest from federal investigators. “It’s hard to hear,” she said. “He and I have had a couple conversations about that.”
But Thomas, like so many who have met Gillum since he launched his run for governor, has a relationship that means more to her than news articles about federal subpoenas or campaign trail attack ads. She said she trusts that he’s done everything with good intentions, and that he’s going to be successful.
“There are some of us who will support him,” she said, “whatever he does next.”
Gillum’s alleged participation in a meth-fueled orgy may stall his political stardom within the Democrat Party.
North Carolina Congressional Hopeful Madison Cawthorn Demands ‘New Republican Party’ Shifting to the Left on Healthcare, Environment, Race Issues
Cawthorn wants to adopt leftist measures to win over Generation Z.
Madison Cawthorn, who is the Republican U.S. Rep. candidate for North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District, is calling for a “new Republican Party” that pays lip service to issues that are important to leftists.
“The status quo days of the GOP being defined by what we are against, rather than what we are for, are over. We intend to listen, but we also intend to win the argument,” he wrote in his op/ed for the Daily Wire.
Instead of opposing left-wing policies, Cawthorn wants Republicans to capitulate and give concessions to the Left in order to placate to young people in Generation Z who overwhelmingly support leftist politics.
“For the past two decades, however, the Republican Party has marginalized principled reformers in its own ranks and let itself be branded as the “party of no.” On things such as health care, the environment, and other key issues, our leadership has aggressively attacked ideas from the Left but has failed to force consensus around the best ideas from the Right,” Cawthorn wrote.
“Our party, the Grand Old Party, is no longer very grand. But it is very old. Our leaders have failed us and it’s time we stopped putting up with it,” he added.
He wants Republicans to embrace government solutions on issues like healthcare and the environment while echoing woke talking points with regards to race.
“Our party ought not to be ashamed of its heritage nor be afraid of open debate and challenging the “woke” left. On race, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) is right and wise to remind conservatives that unjust racial bias is real and persistent. As Scott, who is black, notes, he knows what it’s like to be pulled over to be stopped by security in the Capitol because of the color of his skin. We’ve come a long way, but Scott is right to remind Republicans that we have a long way to go,” Cawthorne wrote.
He also added a thinly-veiled shot as President Donald Trump, which is par for the course considering he is being published in ‘Never Trump’ icon Ben Shapiro’s blog.
“Let us rise as a New Republican Party. A party that offers real solutions and attacks ideas rather than individuals. A party that meets voters where they are, and instead of belittling them for what they care about, offers a better way,” Cawthorne wrote.
“We also must be the party of youth that can win the hearts and minds of young patriots with clear, compelling, and common-sense policies that put people first and politics second. This is the New Republican Party. This is the New Town Square. We were created for such a time as this,” he concluded.
Cawthorne’s milquetoast brand of Republicanism that appeases left-wing extremists at war with America is a direct rebuke to President Trump’s strong “America First” message. He is echoing Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) by essentially surrendering to the Left.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) recently came out of the closet, outing himself as a so-called “rational environmentalist” in a Facebook video repeating leftist talking points about the evil of carbon emissions.
“I’m an environmentalist. And I know climate change is real,” Crenshaw said to open his video.
“I’m also rational – and I know that wasting your tax dollars on crazy Green New Deals will put millions out of work and drastically increase your electric bill and your taxes,” he added.
Crenshaw is trying to stake out a middle ground in which he cedes some ground to the Left in order to get in the so-called “national discussion” on environmental policy. This is a rehash of the weak brand of compassionate Republicanism that resulted in eight years of Barack Hussein Obama in the White House.
He claims that his plan is to “make America the world leader in clean energy” by reducing carbon emissions.
“I’m Dan Crenshaw, and I approve this message because if we come together, we can put America on the path to a new energy frontier,” he said to conclude his video.
The full Facebook video can be seen here.
Cawthorn will join Crenshaw in Congress to subvert President Trump’s influence on the GOP. He seems to be another wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing RINO plotting against the MAGA revival.
