Congressional candidate Gwen Graham released two new TV ads expanding on her theme of bringing a new attitude to Washington D.C., which she calls the “North Florida Way.”
The Tallahassee Democrat faces Republican incumbent U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland for the region covering Tallahassee through Panama City and the eastern part of the Florida Panhandle.
One ad has Graham walking through a local t-shirt manufacturing shop.
“If Congress actually had to produce something, all their fighting and partisanship would bring a place like this to a screeching halt,” Graham says in “Results.”
“There’s no time for fighting in their business,” she adds.
In “Boats,” Graham talks about how Panama City fishermen work together to create jobs.
“Here in St. Andrew’s Bay,” she says, “our fishing industry uses skill and cooperation to fill these boats with fish, North Florida jobs, and economic opportunity.
“There’s no room for squabbling in their business.”
Both ads highlight the “North Florida Way,” a set of values that Gwen Graham, daughter of former governor and U.S. Sen. Bob Graham, promises to take to Capitol Hill if elected. She believes they are the values that will break partisan gridlock.
“I approve this message because this messed-up Congress needs to start doing business the North Florida way,” Graham says.
