STATEMENT: Gillum Campaign Highlights Graham’s Hypocrisy on Outside Spending
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Andrew Gillum for Governor Campaign released the following statement today:
“It’s hypocritical for the Graham campaign to denounce outside spending and now call it “dark money” when it doesn’t benefit her like it did in 2014. Her “very conservative” record is on full display, and this campaign should be about her record against the Mayor’s record,” said Geoff Burgan, Communications Director.
In 2014, Super PAC’s spent $1.3 million dollars either in support of Graham or against then-Congressman Steve Southerland. Click here for data back-up.
