Biden hints at support for likely Gwen Graham gubernatorial bid
As U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham prepares to leave the Congress and launch a likely Democratic bid for governor in 2018, she's got one prominent Democrat already singing her praises.
On Nov. 7, the day before the election, Vice President Joe Biden made a campaign stop for Hillary Clinton in Tallahassee. Thanking local lawmakers, he gave quite the shoutout to Graham, whose district the event was in.
"Gwen Graham, great congresswoman who I predict may be your next governor down here," Biden said to raucus applause.
Of course, no major candidates have declared for the race yet, and Graham is just "seriously considering" a run -- at least officially. But a kind word from a popular vice president doesn't hurt.
