Former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine’s gubernatorial campaign announced Friday that it’s put up billboards on Colonial Drive and another major intersection in Orlando.

“Central Florida is a key region in our state and as we build our campaign and expand our outreach, bringing our message to the voters of Orlando is a top priority,” said Christian Ulvert, senior advisor to the campaign.

“With just 144 days left until Floridians go to the polls and vote in the primary, the Levine campaign is committed to continue taking our message directly to the people.”

The campaign said the billboards “offer a clear message of Mayor Philip Levine’s bold progressive vision to deliver on his commitment for a 21st century economy for Florida.”

Since entering the race, Levine has spent at least $4 million on television advertising, making his campaign one of the most visible during the early stages of the race to replace termed-out Gov. Rick Scott.

Levine is one of four Democrats running for Governor in 2018. He faces Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, former Congresswoman Gwen Graham and Orlando businessman Chris King in the primary.

Levine currently leads the Democratic field in fundraising with more than $11 million raised, including $1 million in March.

Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and Northeast Florida U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis are competing for the Republican nomination, with House Speaker Richard Corcoran expected to join the race in the coming weeks.
