Emily's List, the national group that backs pro-choice female candidates, announced today that it endorsed Gwen Graham for Florida governor.
From a press release:
“Gwen Graham doesn’t need to tell Floridians that she’s a champion for women and families in her state – her record proves that beyond a doubt,” said EMILY’s List President Stephanie Schriock. “While serving in one of the most divisive Congresses in memory, Gwen fought to ensure Florida’s veterans received the health care they deserved, to end gender discrimination in pay, and for affordable college education for Floridians and all Americans. A tireless advocate for the middle class, Gwen has time and again fought for all the people of her state by building consensus, finding common ground, and defending our progressive values. Florida has never in its history elected a woman governor, and as someone who is incredibly passionate about the Sunshine State and the people who live there, Gwen is the leader Floridians need as governor. Gwen puts Florida first – and we are thrilled to stand with her in this fight.”
