Democratic gubernatorial candidate Philip Levine is adding a presence in Broward County now, with the addition of Bob Sciranko as his campaign’s Broward regional area director.

Levine already has set up regional area directors in Tampa Bay and Central Florida to go along with his campaign headquarters in Miami.

Sciranko served as field director for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in Florida’s 18th Congressional District. Previously, he worked as regional organizing director on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign for eastern Broward County and on Charlie Crist’s 2014 gubernatorial campaign for northern Broward County. He also served as a deputy field organizer on President Barack Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign.

Levine, the businessman and former mayor of Miami Beach, faces former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, and Winter Park businessman Chris King in the August 28 Democratic primary to run for governor.

“Bob’s deep experience in Broward County will enhance the strength of our robust South Florida engagement plan as we work to bring Mayor Levine’s message directly to the people of Florida,” Campaign Manager Matthew Van Name stated in a news release. “We’re excited to have him join Team Levine as we continue to expand and develop a dynamic campaign infrastructure built to engage with voters in communities throughout every region of our state.”
