West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio makes her pick in governor’s race

West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio, left, is endorsing former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham in the Democratic primary for governor.

Two of her fellow Florida mayors have launched 2018 campaigns for governor, but West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio is endorsing former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham in the Democratic primary.

Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum entered the Democratic race early this year and Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine is expected to formally announce his gubernatorial bid this morning. Winter Park businessman Chris King is also seeking the Democratic nomination.

Muoio is going public with her support for Graham, who served a term in Congress and is the daughter of former Florida Gov. and Sen. Bob Graham

Says Muoio: “After 20 years of Republican dominance in Tallahassee, too many Florida families are struggling to find good paying jobs, to make ends meet, to stay in their homes. Gwen Graham understands the challenges they are facing and has bold ideas to put our state on a brighter path forward. Gwen has a proven record of standing up for middle-class and working families. As governor, she’ll fight to create jobs, raise wages and build an economy that works for every Floridian.”
