Graham calls Trump an 'embarrassment' in first campaign ad



Former Congresswoman Gwen Graham rolled out her first gubernatorial campaign ad Tuesday, contrasting herself with President Donald Trump.

“Donald Trump is an embarrassment. Donald Trump is an example of a bully,” Graham says in the ad.

Graham's campaign says the digital ad -- a textbook piece heading into a mid-term election taking place under a president with an underwater approval rating -- will be initially targeting Palm Beach, the home of Trump's Mar-a-Lago retreat. After that, it will be aired statewide.

Graham, who is running for the Democratic nominee for governor, had raised about $6.8 million through her campaign account and Gwen Graham for Florida political committee as of early March, and spent about $2 million. She's beginning her ad campaign as Philip Levine, whom polls show is neck-and-neck with Graham in the Democratic primary, has been airing commercials for months.
