Biden Taps Graham for Education Post

President Joe Biden announced Friday that he plans to nominate former Florida Congresswoman Gwen Graham to serve as an assistant secretary in the U.S. Department of Education.

Graham, an attorney, represented the Tallahassee area and other parts of North Florida in the U.S. House from 2015 to 2017 and ran unsuccessfully for governor in 2018.

Friday’s announcement by the White House said Graham would serve as assistant secretary for legislation and congressional affairs at the Department of Education.

The announcement said Graham, whose father is former Gov. and U.S. Sen. Bob Graham, was “known as one of the House’s most bipartisan members” while she was in Congress. Before getting elected to the House, Gwen Graham worked as a lawyer for the Leon County school district. The nomination is subject to Senate confirmation.

  1. What does she know about the federal education system? She’s a lawyer politician. Has she studied education? Ran a school? Been a teacher? Has she been a manager, administrator, assisted in running a massive agency?

  2. Think back to 2014 to 2016. It was Gwen who worked behind the scenes to help Hanna bring the false charges against Pons and the School Board. She and her father helped Hanna get elected. She should take Hanna with her to Washington or pay back us tax payers for the thousands it cost the School Board to investigate that past fiasco.

  3. This leaves just Nikki Weed to run against DeSantis. Nikki is the only one with voter recognition left in the Dem’s stable. It is unlikely that an unknown new exciting dark horse Dem will pull enough votes state wide to win.
    In a DeSanis vs Weed contest DeSantis will prevail. Unless he throws the election himself with an off color off the cuff remark like that monkey it up remark which almost handed the election on a silver platter to Gillum. DeSantis learned from that though and I predict he gets 4 more years.

  4. Her comments and actions have doomed her political career at least in Tallahassee and Florida. Only a matter of time until she self inflicts doom to her political career on a higher level.


    You give false flattery only to benefit yourself. Very off-putting.


    Even Biden won’t give Gillum the time of day so no worries there.

  5. “Biden Taps Graham…”

    That part of the headline alone made me nauseous. First of all, she’s way too old for him… we all know Creepy Uncle Joe the Sniffer likes them young, if not pre-pubescent exclusively. Secondly, the senile old fool doesn’t make any decisions about anything. Jill even tells him what socks to wear, and works hard to keep him from coloring inside the lines.

    Smart move for Graham though. She had/has no chance at another shot at the Governor’s Mansion or elected office… and she now gets to slide back into a life on the public’s dime, where she’s most comfortable.

  6. “Assistant secretary.” Perhaps she won’t be able to do too much harm given her lack of expertise. Oh, I forgot– we have a Vice-president who rivals her in ignorance.
