Democratic gubernatorial candidate Chris King is releasing a digital ad Wednesday that offers a broad, introductory look at his life, career, and positions on issues ranging from affordable housing to guns, and health care to criminal justice reform.
“I am the outsider with new ideas and fresh vision who is willing to display the political courage that this state needs to get things done,” King concludes in his remarks.
The two-minute, 23-second video, “Being Bold,” is being released on the internet and through social media backed by a six-figure buy, the campaign states.
The ad restates some of the positions King has cited in his first two statewide television commercials, including his pledges to take no money from the sugar industry and to “stand up to the NRA.”
The spot includes video from his campaign kickoff 15 months ago, to his April Democratic debate performance, to his criminal justice reform tour last month.
King is up against former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham, former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, and Palm Beach billionaire Jeff Greene in the August 28 Democratic primary to run for governor. The leading Republicans are Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis.
