Miami Beach mayor publishes book about campaign


Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine published his own book about his political campaign.

He’s giving away copies of the about 150 page coffee table book called The Journey.

“When we started looking at all the photographs from the campaign, we thought they were so cool that it would be neat to put it in book format,” Levine said.

The multimillionaire mayor owns a media company that works with the cruise industry. Levine estimated he spent $10,000 to $15,000 of his own money printing about 4,000 copies.

The cover features his signature red Nike sneakers. Inside, the pages list facts like how many doors Levine knocked on (6,000, his team says). The book also features the endorsement speech former President Bill Clinton gave for Levine, the mayor said.
