Rihanna is the latest celebrity who has endorsed Democratic nominee for Florida governor Andrew Gillum. The singer took to Instagram today, just two days before midterm elections on Nov. 6 to voice her support of the candidate.


The post read: "The US has only had four black Governors in its entire history, and we can help make #AndrewGillum the next one and Florida’s first! If you’re tired of feeling like you don’t matter in the political process, know the most important thing you can do in supporting a candidate is finding someone who will take on critical issues such as: making minimum wage a livable wage, paying teachers what their worth, ensuring criminal justice reform, making healthcare a right, and repealing Stand Your Ground."

Rihanna also urged voters to vote yes on Amendment 4. According to the Miami Herald, if the amendment passes "most felons will automatically be able to register to vote after completing all terms of their sentences."

The publication notes "an estimated 1.2 million people who currently can’t vote would be affected by the change. Those who committed murder or sex crimes are not eligible."
