A long-time Florida Senator who’s making his first trip to Iowa discounts the idea he’s getting a late start in the campaign for the presidency. Sixty-six-year-old Bob Graham is one of a growing list of Democrats who’re competing for their party’s 2004 presidential nomination.Graham says it’s easier to play catch-up in fundraising and organization than in amassing the credentials which show you’re ready to be president. Graham says he’ll quickly “close the gap” with his competitors. Graham, who had heart valve surgery in January, says he has the “fire in the belly” and the resume that’re necessary for success. Graham says he’s the only candidate of a “major” state. Graham was Florida’s Governor for eight years, and he says there were a million new jobs created during his tenure. Howard Dean, one of Graham’s competitors, was Vermont’s Governor.
