Annoucements of Candidacy

Gwen Graham, former Congress-woman and daughter of former Governor/US Senator Bob Graham to Announce Run for Governor
Former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham is headed to Miami to make a “major announcement” on Tuesday, likely announcing her intentions to run for Florida governor in 2018.   Graham’s former communications director Matt Harringer made the announcement Monday afternoon.

Matt Caldwell Announces for Ag Commissioner – 
Setting up a primary battle against fellow lawmaker Denise Grimsley, state Rep. Matt Caldwell announced Monday he will run for agriculture commissioner next year.
The announcement was not a surprise: Caldwell, R-North Fort Myers, has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in recent months for a political committee that could play an important role in his campaign.  But it formally sets the stage for a primary race against Grimsley, R-Sebring, with both candidates touting their long roots in the state and ties to the agriculture industry.
