Levine releases DACA ad, en Español



Philip Levine continues to spend early and to go hard after Hispanic voters as he runs for the Democratic nomination for Florida's governor.

On Friday, the ex-Miami Beach mayor's political committee, All About Florida, released another Spanish-language commercial, this one hammering President Donald Trump over DACA as a fight over the protection of Dreamers threatens to contribute to a federal government shutdown.

The committee is spending $100,000 and running the ad for 10 days on Spanish-language networks across the state, according to political consultant Christian Ulvert. Levine's campaign and committee have spent more than $2 million on commercials and media buys ahead of the August primary.

Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, former Congresswoman Gwen Graham, and Winter Park businessman Chris King are also running for the Democratic nomination.
