Bob Graham has been a major player in national politics for decades. When the U.S. was attacked 10 years ago, Senator Graham was representing Florida in the United States Senate.  Graham, who is also a former two-term governor of Florida, served as Chairman of the Weapons of Mass Destruction and Terrorism Commission. This Sunday at 6 p.m. in Pugh Hall on the University of Florida campus, Graham and his Center for Public Service at UF will host an event to figure out whether Florida is ready to face a similar situation if it were to ever occur here. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Trent Kelly talked with Senator Graham.
