Gwen Graham, probably best known for being the daughter of a popular Florida Governor and US Senator as opposed to her own congressional career, is running for governor. But, does she know it?
In her first digital ad, one the campaign spent a lot of money to push on several social media platforms, Graham goes after President Donald Trump. While that is a popular position for Democrats around the country, it may not serve a gubernatorial candidate very well at all.
First, Donald Trump is not in this race other than his announced support for Republican Ron DeSantis. Second, She is in a primary election where her opponents are also Democrats and will share the animus toward Trump. Third, she is fighting on Donald Trump’s home turf, Twitter!
He will take her ad and beat her thoroughly around the head and shoulders with it and make that portion of her campaign as worthless as Charlie Crist’s No Party Affiliated run for the Senate against Marco Rubio.
If Graham is that politically naïve, she may have just run herself out of contention.
