The midterm elections are only 19 days away. There is talk about a “blue wave” but that is contingent upon people coming out to vote in massive droves. In 2016, the largest voting bloc was non-voters — an alarming 100 million people.
This year, there are Black men and women running all over the country, from Texas to Florida to California. History can be made on November 6 as long as you show up to the polls. Here are ten candidate running for office.
1. Andrew Gillum For Florida Governor
2. Ben Jealous For Maryland Governor
This campaign started at Baltimore Blossoms, the flower shop my cousin started after the Baltimore Uprisings because she wanted to help make her community better.— Ben Jealous (@BenJealous) October 11, 2018
Our campaign has always been about pulling together ordinary people to ensure our state does extraordinary things. pic.twitter.com/cyAVa49xxE
