Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gwen Graham wants to put a stop to Florida utility ratepayers paying for nuclear power  plants that were never built or which never worked, or for paying for fracking exploration in Florida.

The primary race in House District 68 between fellow St. Petersburg Democrats Eric Lynn and Ben Diamond is becoming so competitive that when one candidate announces an endorsement, the other also seems to follow suit a few hours later.
