NOW backing Gwen Graham in Governor’s race

Gwen Graham

In a home stretch endorsement potentially bolstering her standing on women’s issues, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gwen Graham announced Monday the backing of the National Organization for Women’s Florida Political Action Committee.

The Florida NOW PAC endorsement joins those Graham already had picked up in her campaign from EMILY’s List and NARAL Pro-Choice America in her quest to stand out by gender against four men also seeking the Democratic nomination in the Aug. 28 primary.

“The Florida NOW PAC is happy and proud to endorse Gwen Graham for Florida Governor. We know that Gwen will be supportive of our issues and will bring a much-needed sense of decency, honesty and respect back to the office,” Florida NOW President Terry Sanders stated in a news release issued by the Graham campaign.

Graham faces former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, businessman Jeff Greene, and businessman Chris King in the Democratic primary.

“With Donald Trump’s nomination of another anti-choice justice to the Supreme Court, women’s rights are on the ballot this November,” Graham stated in the release. “I am proud to have the endorsement of Florida NOW. Working with their members across the state, we will defend women’s rights in Florida.”
