Gillum was last year’s Democratic nominee. He narrowly lost to Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis.
Gillum settled a state ethics case last month, agreeing to pay a $5,000 fine for receiving gifts from a lobbyist.
He was also Tallahassee’s mayor during an FBI corruption investigation into city hall that led to three arrests earlier this year. Gillum said during the campaign he wasn’t a target in that investigation.
Gillum said in a statement to the Times that his campaign “complied fully with the law.”
