The campaign to elect Gwen Graham to the U.S. House of Representatives for Florida's 2nd Congressional District has embarked on a tour of the district called "Grilling with the Grahams".
The tour is slated to span eight days and cover all fourteen counties in the district, which include all of Bay, Calhoun, Dixie, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Jackson, Lafayette, Liberty, Suwannee, Taylor, and Wakulla counties, and portions of Jefferson, Leon, Walton, and Okaloosa counties.
The tour is scheduled to stop in Franklin County on Friday, August 1, 2014 from 12:00-2:00pm at the Battery Park Community Center, located at 1 Bay Avenue in Apalachicola. Joining the candidate will be her father, the former Governor of Florida and former U.S. Senator Bob Graham, her mother, husband, children, and siblings.
The stopover in Franklin County will provide an opportunity for local residents to meet with the candidate, discuss the issues while having a burger with the whole Graham family.
Graham is running to unseat Steve Southerland, II the incumbent district representative in a hotly contested race.
