Despite rumors of a possible bid for Florida’s 5th Congressional District, Mayor Andrew Gillum says he’s not in the race.

“I have no plans of running for Congress. I absolutely love my job as mayor. I love the community that my wife and I have adopted as our home,” he said.

The buzz follows the Florida Supreme Court’s decision Wednesday to sign off on new congressional district maps.
