Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gwen Graham raised more than $660,000 in February and continues to dominate on the grassroots front with over 15,000 individual contributors, thousands more than any other candidate running for Governor.
“As the Republican politicians in Tallahassee wrap up their 20th session with complete control of the Legislature and Governor’s Office, they proved yet again they work for the special interests, not the people,” Graham said. “I’m running for governor to work for Florida — to work for our public schools, for our teachers, for our seniors, and for every hardworking Floridian.”
Graham also has more donors than each of her primary opponents in their home turfs, with more supporters in Leon, Miami-Dade and Orange counties than any of the other Democratic candidates.
“I am so proud of the grassroots campaign we’re building. From small-dollar donors across the state to outreach meetings in Democratic and Republican counties, we are building a movement to turn Florida blue in 2018,” Graham said.
Graham raised more than $220,000 for her campaign and over $440,000 for the Graham for Governor Political Committee. The contributions included $250,000 from her father, former Governor and Senator Bob Graham.
“I believe in Gwen’s leadership, I share Gwen’s priorities and I know Gwen’s heart for Florida,” Governor Bob Graham said. “As someone who knows the opportunities and challenges of serving as Governor of Florida, this is the very best investment I could make in a stronger future for our state.”
