U.S. Senator Bill Nelson Endorses Gwen Graham For Congress
Florida U.S. Senator Bill Nelson is endorsing Democratic Congressional candidate Gwen Graham.
Speaking to reporters in Tallahassee Thursday, Nelson accused North Florida Congressman Steve Southerland of contributing to the gridlock in Congress.
“I represent all the people in Florida. I don’t represent just those who voted for me," he said. "I represent indeed, in addition, those who didn’t vote for me. As well as those who didn’t vote at all.”
Graham is challenging Southerland and is promoting a platform based largely on Democratic talking points, such as raising the minimum wage. Gubernatorial Democratic Candidate Charlie Crist has reiterated the same points in his quest to beat Governor Rick Scott.
