Democrats in Florida and Georgia are trying to make history on Election Day. Four days out, they are getting a boost from someone who knows a thing or two about it.

Former President Barack Obama will campaign for Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum in Miami on Friday afternoon, at a rally also featuring incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson, before heading a few hours north to Atlanta to meet up with former state House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams.

Gillum could become Florida’s first African-American governor with a victory next week. Abrams’ election would make her the first ever female African-American governor in the country.
