Andrew wants to put working people back into this government. He grew up with a father and mother that worked very hard and wants to not only pay them back, but the community that helped raise him. Andrew mentioned that he’s fighting to pay teachers more as well as keep the Affordable Care Act around and many other things.

This past weekend President Barack Obama endorsed Andrew and he felt so honored by it. If elected, Andrew has the opportunity to change a lot of things in the state of Florida that have kept them from thriving. He’s also dedicated to protecting Obama’s legacy.
