PHILADELPHIA — Like every speaker who addressed Florida Democratic National Convention delegates at daily breakfasts here last week, U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham, D-Tallahassee, urged the partisans to work hard to elect Hillary Clinton and defeat Donald Trump in November.

 

“And in two years,” Graham added, “we’ll have the opportunity to take back the governor’s mansion.”

 

Graham was one of three Dems mentioned as potential 2018 gubernatorial candidates — Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn and Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine were the others — who kept a high profile among Florida delegates at the convention.

 

A week earlier at the Republican convention in Cleveland, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam sponsored a breakfast for delegates, furthering the widespread expectation that he’ll be a candidate to replace term-limited Gov. Rick Scott in 2018.
