Top DCCC Recruit Gwen Graham (D-FL) Already Running From Pelosi

Yesterday, top DCCC recruit Gwen Graham (D-FL) refused to committo supporting Nancy Pelosi for Speaker if she were actually to win Florida’s 2nd Congressional District:

The last thing Graham would want in running for a district like this is to be portrayed as a radical liberal. So she answers questions like “Would she support Nancy Pelosi as Speaker?” this way:

“I don’t want to take a position in advance of actually knowing who the leadership will be at the time.”

Graham said she wants to be viewed as a moderate who would help end the partisanship that divides Washington.

This may concern DCCC Chairman Steve Israel, whose PAC donated $1,000 to Graham’s campaign:

As well as House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, whose PAC donated $5,000 to Graham’s campaign:
