It's January. Which means Florida's Democratic gubernatorial candidates really want to visit balmy South Florida.

Former Congresswoman Gwen Graham was in Doral on Saturday serving up draughts at M.I.A. Beer Company during on of her campaign's "work days" — a throwback to the blue-collar events her father, former Governor Bob Graham, used to hold.

Former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine (he lives here, but whatever) appeared at Las Fiestas de la Calle Miami, a two-day Puerto Rican festival at Bayfront Park, to talk about his "commitment to Puerto Rican families."

And on Sunday, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum visited the 93d Street Missionary Baptist Church then went to the Women's March at Mana Wynwood Convention Center.

The three candidates came to town on the heels of a visit by Winter Park businessman Chris King, who was in South Florida last week on an "affordable living tour."

On the Republican side, Ron DeSantis has scheduled a campaign kickoff Jan. 29 in Boca Raton.
