The District 38 state senate race is now hitting the airwaves.
Former prosecutor Jason Pizzo released the first TV ad in the race on Friday. The 30-second-spot, titled "Leadership," focuses on Pizzo's record as a prosecutor and highlights curbing gun violence as a major issue for his campaign.
"While gun violence continues to rip our communities apart, typical politicians do nothing," Pizzo says in the ad. The ad also makes a mention of providing a living wage.
Pizzo has a wide lead in the money race in District 38, which encompasses most of northeast Miami-Dade. He's raised almost $430,000, although $400,000 are loans.
The ad will air on targeted broadcast stations and cable networks as part of a "six-figure" buy, according to Pizzo campaign consultant Christian Ulvert.
