TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — In a state with a long-standing tradition of electing white, Christian men, Florida‘s Democratic primary could produce the state’s first black or woman governor or the second Jewish governor in its history.

Gwen Graham, the only woman running for governor, or Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, the only black candidate, would set a first-in-Florida milestone if either goes on to win the general election. And former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine or billionaire real estate investor Jeff Greene would be only the second Jewish governor.
