Gwen was elected to the House of Representatives in one of the nation’s most competitive races on a promise to fight for the middle class, invest in our schools, protect Medicare and create jobs.

Gwen is also following in the footsteps of her father, Governor Bob Graham, with Graham Workdays, where she spends an entire shift working alongside real Floridians. Her jobs have included work on farms, a day as a hotel maid, and even training with the US Air Force in a T-38 jet.

In addition to Ms. Graham, Reggie Cardozo, with the Florida Democratic Party will be present, and the will be a SNL-type skit put on by the Not-ready-for-Primetime Blue Democratic Players.
