Andrew Gillum, who is married with three children, released a statement on the incident and said,
“I was in Miami last night for a wedding celebration when first responders were called to assist one of my friends.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.”
