Graham, a Tallahassee Democrat who chose not to seek re-election in her redrawn congressional district, spent the day on the algae-plagued St. Lucie River. She was joined by her father, former governor and U.S. Sen. Bob Graham, along with area activists and scientists for a water-testing work day.
Graham last month asked Gov. Rick Scott to call a special session of the Legislature to tackle the algae bloom. He didn’t.
Graham plans to cross the state Wednesday for an appearance with state Rep. Amanda Murphy, D-New Port Richey, and take part in a campaign phone bank. Murphy wasn’t challenged for the Democratic nomination in her district, but faces Republican Amber Mariano in the November election.
Graham plans to spend primary night at U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy’s expected victory party in Palm Beach Gardens. She also joined the Democratic U.S. Senate contender earlier Tuesday in Miami Gardens.
On Thursday, she’s set to be in Tampa and Gainesville, for appearances with U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor, D-Tampa, and Rod Smith, the former Democratic state senator making a comeback bid this fall.
