From Tallahassee.com: “Buffett rallies Tallahassee voters as early numbers come in”
Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band brought some beach-filled flair to congressional candidate Gwen Graham’s campaign Wednesday.
Less than a week until the Nov. 4 General Election, the over-40 victim of fate fired up a Hawaiian-shirt and lei-festooned crowd of more than 500 in Tallahassee.
“It’s pretty simple, enemy of the ocean or the great Gwen Graham,” Buffett said standing with Graham and her father Bob Graham before playing. “A great Florida family of public servants and that’s why I’m here.”
Graham faces Rep. Steve Southerland R-Panama City to represent Florida’s 2nd Congressional District in what has become one of the nation’s most heated House races. Southerland is seeking his third term.
Buffett, who dropped several Graham references into his songs Wednesday, is the latest in a list of stars tapped by Graham’s campaign for support and to encourage early voting in the closing weeks. With early voting numbers already being analyzed the race has only gotten hotter.
