Former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine is keeping a bilingual advertising push going over the holidays as he runs for the 2018 Democratic nomination to become Florida's next governor.
His political committee, All About Florida, announced Wednesday that it is releasing two more commercials, each featuring his family. One, in English, features his mother, Diane. The second features his fiancé, Carolina, and two step-kids, Mica and Beno, and the couple's son, Henry.
Both ads tout the independently wealthy Levine's business history, and introduce voters to a candidate who announced his campaign in November and still remains relatively unknown to voters outside of South Florida. The commercials, which the committee said "will air for several weeks beginning today, in a vast majority of the state's media markets," come on the heels of a November that saw Levine raise more than $1 million.
