Gwen Graham releases two TV ads playing off Washington partisanship

Gwen Graham's campaign this morning announced it was airing two new TV ads in the North Florida district. Both play off partisanship in Washington and cast Graham, a Democrat running against Rep. Steve Southerland, as a consensus builder.

"Imagine if we loaded Congress onto one of these boats. With all their squabbling and partisanship – it would go down before it left the dock," she says in one ad. "But here in St. Andrew’s Bay, our fishing industry uses skill and cooperation to fill these boats with fish, North Florida jobs, and economic opportunity. There’s no room for squabbling in their business." The campaign said $58,000 was behind the ads, to be split between the Tallahassee and Panama City markets on cable and broadcast for now.
