Will Weatherford Backs Neal Dunn to Take on Gwen Graham
Former Florida House Speaker Will Weatherford announced on Wednesday he was backing Dr. Neal Dunn to run against U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham, D-Fla.
“As exemplified by his service in the military, as well as the medical practice he built, Neal Dunn has shown Floridians that he is a dedicated leader and, above all else, a true public servant,” said Weatherford. “Through his experiences, Neal understands the issues that are important to Floridians, including health care, the economy and the importance of the military to our national security.
“I truly believe Neal embodies the conservative principles that North Florida possesses and is the voice that Congressional District 2 needs serving as their representative in Washington; and, I am happy to lend him my support,” Weatherford added.
“I am grateful to receive former Speaker Weatherford’s endorsement in my bid for Congressional District 2,” said Dunn. “As a staunch conservative who shares many of my same beliefs, former Speaker Weatherford is the epitome of a leader in Florida politics. As I continue to campaign on the three issues most important me – health care, national security and the economy – receiving the support and encouragement from him is humbling.”
Weatherford joins former state House Speaker Allen Bense (his father-in-law) and former Florida Senate President Don Gaetz, who led the Senate when Weatherford led the House, in backing Dunn. Tallahassee attorney Mary Thomas is running against Dunn in the Republican primary.
