Gwen Graham expected to announce for governor Tuesday



Former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham is expected to announce her bid for governor Tuesday in Miami Gardens.

Her spokespersons are not officially confirming the subject of her "major announcement" but Democrats believe she will make her candidacy official.

Graham announced a year ago that she would not seek re-election to her Panhandle-based seat in Congress and would instead explore a bid for governor.

She will become the first major candidate who is female -- on the Democratic side Tallahassee mayor Andrew Gillum and Orlando businessman Chris King have announced. Republican Agricultural Commissioner Adam Putnam filed Monday.
