MIDWAY, FL - It's be around two weeks since Mayor Andrew Gillum announced he is running for Governor.

Today, Mayor Gillum sat down with Anchor Christine Souders to talk about what has happened so far in the campaign.

Just this week, Mayor Gillum announced a strategy to win in 2018 by visiting 67 counties.

Christine Souders asked how he plans to may stops all across Florida and juggle the family life, seeing his wife RJai is pregnant and they have two young children.

Mayor Gillum listed off all the stops he had just last week, while still making time with the family to visit The Grove Museum.

Also, Gillum touched on his public apology and reimbursement of nearly $5,000 to the City of Tallahassee, after emails that weren't government-related were sent out from his mayoral office. He discussed the Leon County Sheriff Office's investigation and moving forward.

Gillum stated just yesterday, his team found an email with a heading that announced he was speaking at the 2016 Democratic Convention. He said even that heading is something he feels obligated to reimburse the city for, and plans to go through all emails with a fine-tooth comb.

Gillum appears to be getting a lot of support.

He talked with Christine Souders about his most recent endorsement by Tallahassee Representative Loranne Ausley.
