Upon entering the Florida governor’s race, Gwen Graham was widely heralded by the Democrat establishment as the front-runner.
But, Graham has failed to attract enthusiasm from the Democrat base, and now she is increasingly attacked from within her own party.
On MSNBC over the weekend, one of Graham’s opponents, Andrew Gillum, slammed her for taking different positions now than when she ran for congress in 2013.
In a recent column, another prominent Florida Democrat, Leslie Wimes, attacked Graham for completing flip-flops “of Charlie Crist proportion” on issues.
Even Democrats don’t want a typical politician who says one thing, but does another.
Sunshine State News column:
“We all know that politicians tell voters what they want to hear in order to get elected.
We have come to expect it even. What we don’t see often is complete flip-flops, not only on issue positions but on characterizations of who they really are.
Enter Gwen Graham. Her latest flip-flops are of Charlie Crist proportion.”
