Press Release: Gwen Graham Campaign
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Gwen Graham announced that she has filed to run for Congress in Florida's Second Congressional District, which runs across North Florida.
Graham is a Washington outsider, who first moved to Tallahassee when her father, Bob Graham, was elected as governor. She’s raised her own family – a daughter and two sons in Tallahassee and works for the Leon County School District.
Graham is running because she wants to give the people of North Florida an independent voice in Congress – not one beholden to special interests or party politics.
“It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that Congress is a dysfunctional mess. They'd rather fight each other with the goal of scoring points on cable news instead of focusing on creating jobs and balancing the budget – in fact, Congress hasn't even passed a budget since Bobby Bowden was coach at FSU.
Growing up, my dad told me, citizenship requires us to do more than complain about our problems – we have to work together to fix them.
Our problems can’t be blamed on only Republicans or only Democrats – we need more people in both parties committed to working together and finding real solutions.
I’m running for Congress to represent you with an independent voice in Washington. I will work with anyone, regardless of party affiliation, to create jobs, invest in education and balance our budget – with a plan that stands up for the middle class, keeps taxes low and protects Medicare and Social Security.
I am ready to serve in Congress and be part of the solution, not more of the problem.”
