North Florida Congresswoman Gwen Graham is blasting Governor Rick Scott as well as Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

At a recent Florida Delegation breakfast hailing Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, Graham drew comparisons between political outsiders Governor Scott and Donald Trump.

“In Florida, we’ve seen what can happen when the far right candidates win, even when no one thinks they can win, and I have two words for you: Rick Scott,” said Graham. “And, make no mistake Rick Scott and Donald Trump are cut from the same wing of the Republican Party: not from the conservative wing, but the Con Man wing. And, if you want to know what could America, just look what’s happened to our beautiful state. Look at our economy. After six years, we’re now the third most populous state, but we rank 38th in wages.”

Many speculate Graham may be considering a run for Governor in 2018. Meanwhile, current Governor Scott was just recently named to chair Trump’s Super PAC Rebuilding America Now.
