CNN contributor and recent Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum has checked himself into rehab for alcohol abuse after a recent incident in Miami.

Gillum claimed he had fallen into a depression and alcohol abuse after losing his bid for the state’s highest post.

Miami Beach police reported last week that Gillum was found in a hotel room, drunk and initially unresponsive along with a male companion.

Police also found baggies of suspected crystal methamphetamine.

Gillum was not charged with any crime.

CNN so far hasn’t commented on the incident.

Just months ago, he was being courted as a possible running mate with then-Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren.
