Nancy Pelosi & FL Dem Gwen Graham Are Like Two Peas In A Pod
NRCC | September 12, 2013

Did you see this?

Nancy Pelosi and national Democrats are not backing down when it comes to their love fest for Gwen Graham. Pelosi and her Washington attack dogs want it known that they are ready to pick favorites in the second congressional race regardless if other candidates, like Al Lawson, decide to get in.

Why would they do that?

Because they know if Gwen is sent to Washington, she will become a rubber stamp for Nancy Pelosi and her liberal agenda.

Roll Call reported:

“In Florida’s 2nd District, the DCCC recruited and touted attorney Gwen Graham, the daughter of former Sen. and Gov. Bob Graham. She potentially faces a primary from former state Sen. Al Lawson, who has lost two bids for the seat held by GOP Rep. Steve Southerland II.

Lawson has not yet made an announcement about the race, but he’s publicly expressed frustration with the national party’s support for Graham in news interviews, including with CQ Roll Call. Lawson did not return request for comment for this story.

Nonetheless, the committee is taking a chance that its early support for these candidates will pay off in the long term.”

NRCC Statement: “The fact that Nancy Pelosi is picking favorites between Democrats in this race should be a clear sign to Florida families that Gwen Graham has an extremely liberal agenda. Washington Democrats know that if they want to see Pelosi in the Speaker’s chair once again, they need an extreme ideologue like Gwen in Congress.” – NRCC Spokeswoman Katie Prill
