Leaving Congress, Gwen Graham hits road for other Democrats -- and for her likely '18 run for governor
With no race of her own, U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham is traveling Florida this week on behalf of other candidates -- and for her likely 2018 gubernatorial run.
Graham today was in Miami Lakes with her father to campaign with Patrick Murphy. Wednesday she’ll join a phone bank for state Rep. Amanda Murphy in Holiday then attend a “Women for Hillary” house party at the Tampa residence of Blair and Ron O'Neal.
“On Thursday, she'll tour MacDill Air Force Base with Congresswoman Kathy Castor, then join Rod Smith for a general election campaign kickoff in Gainesville,” Graham’s team wrote in an email to reporters, inviting them to attend the events.
She returns to Tampa Bay on Sept. 10 for a speech before Pasco Democrats.
Graham chose not to run for re-election after her panhandle district was redrawn more solidly Republican.
