Some familiar faces were in Tallahassee Wednesday morning lending a helping hand to Second Harvest of the Big Bend.

Democratic Congressional Candidate Gwen Graham brought several of her family members to sort through donated canned food items to make sure they're safe to eat.

Among the Graham family members participating in the Second Harvest help day was Gwen's father, former Florida Governor and U.S. Senator Bob Graham.

"I haven't lived my life thinking I was going to run for elected office," Gwen Graham said. "What motivated me to serve was my professional and personal experiences. I just happen to have a great dad," she said.

"This is her campaign," said former Senator Graham. "She's planned it, she's running it. When she asks her daddy for help, I try to say yes," he said.

Her opponent, Congressman Steve Southerland says Graham has failed to tell voters how she feels about President Obama's policies.

Graham told Eyewitness News parts of the Affordable Care Act are good, but she has an issue with the small business mandate to provide health insurance.

She also says she's trying to line up a series of debates with Southerland, so far without success.

Tallahassee, FL - U.S. Congress candidate, Gwen Graham, is calling for reform.

Thursday morning, Graham signed a pledge at Lake Ella in Tallahassee.
The pledge calls for an "end" to members of Congress receiving pay while missing votes for no reason, ending wasteful spending on first class flights and the congressional gym, and rejects tax-payer funded subsidies for health-care that are not available to the public.

Graham says, "I'm going to make sure that every single dollar that is spent is spent in the best service of the people in this district, in Florida, and our country. That's my number one priority; and to bring economic development and job growth to this district. I'm going to be fighting hard for that every single day."

Graham is running against Congressman Steve Southerland.
