Former Texas State Senator Wendy Davis endorsed Gwen Graham for Florida Governor on Saturday. Davis is best known for her fight for the pro choice cause during her time in the Texas State Legislature and is a nationally sought speaker on the issue.
Davis was the Keynote Speaker at the Ruth’s List state conference which took place in Orlando, which Graham also attended.
“I was honored to be in Orlando today with Gwen and a crowd of incredible supporters. She showed compassion, grit, and a determination to work for all Floridians that can’t be beat.” said Davis “I am proud to endorse Gwen Graham for Governor of Florida. When I took to the floor of the Texas State Senate to filibuster a bill that would restrict vital women’s health care access, and then ran for Governor of Texas, I did so because someone had to take a stand. Now, I’m proud to be standing with Gwen as we chart the future for the values we care about.”
Graham is one of three Democrats running to replaced termed out incumbent Rick Scott. Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum and Orlando Businessman Chris King are also running. Commissioner of Agriculture, Adam Putnam is running on the Republican side.
