TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham of Florida says she wants to run for governor, and she plans to run for governor. But there’s one very important factor that’s weighing on her decision: her husband has cancer.

She sounded like a candidate on Wednesday evening when she spoke to reporters while conducting her final “work day” as a congresswoman - helping out at an outdoor Christmas tree stand. Work days were a signature of her father Bob Graham’s time as Florida governor and a U.S. senator. Like her father, she spends time experiencing different jobs as a way to reach out to constituents and voters.

She says “every part of me wants to run for governor.” But she says she’s holding off on a decision while her husband is treated for prostate cancer.
