We've got a problem in Florida.
Despite being a swing state, Florida hasn't had a Democratic governor in almost 20 years. And it's hurting Florida women.
One in five Florida women lives in a county without an abortion provider. Over the last few years, Republican Governor Rick Scott has attempted to defund Planned Parenthood by cutting state funding for any health care clinic that provides abortions.
It's time to stop the attacks on women and families. That's why we've endorsed pro-choice champion Gwen Graham in her bid to become the next governor of Florida.

Gwen is no stranger to overcoming the odds.
She put her name on the ballot for the first time in 2014 when gridlock in Congress opened up an opportunity to defeat an extreme Republican. That year, Gwen was one of only two Democrats in the country to flip a House seat from a sitting Republican. She was also the first woman to represent Florida's 2nd District.
We were with Gwen in her 2014 race, and we're proud to be with her now. She not only shares our values, she knows how to win a tough race. Gwen's got exactly what Democrats need to turn this governor's seat blue, but Florida is a notoriously expensive state to run in.
So she's counting on us to help her get off to a strong start.
