Following a weak announcement event, one of Graham’s high-level staffers departed the campaign 36 hours later.
Things have not been going well for former U.S. Representative Gwen Graham’s gubernatorial campaign in its first 48 hours.
At an announcement event on Tuesday, Graham failed to draw double digits in supporters. A picture from the Tampa Bay Times showed an unenthused group of eight standing behind Graham as she announced her run.

In a state of 20 million, only finding eight supporters willing to attend an announcement event does not foreshadow great success in the 2018 campaign.
Then, on Thursday, the SaintPetersBlog reported that one of Graham’s campaign directors was leaving the campaign.
Beth Matuga, whom the Republican Governor’s Association called Graham’s campaign manager in a statement, left the campaign after “at least one well-regarded Democratic operative says they did not want to work for Graham because they did not want to report to Matuga.”
If Graham hopes to win the governor’s mansion in a state that Donald Trump won in 2016, she’ll need her campaign to step up its game.
