Jimmy Buffett plans to hold a get-out-the-vote rally for Democratic candidate for Congress Gwen Graham on Wednesday, October 29th. Graham is the daughter of former Florida governor Bob Graham, whom Buffett started the Save the Manatees organization with in 1981.

Buffett is set to perform “a short acoustic set with his friend Mac McAnally” and tout Graham’s candidacy, according to a press release. More details are forthcoming about the time, location and ticket availability.

From the free media exposure to voter mobilization to fundraising, Buffett’s appearance for Graham is the type of star-power help most candidates dream about. Polling indicates the race between her and Southerland is tight in Congressional District 2, which stretches from the Tallahassee area to Panama City.
