The campaign has purchased a $60,000 ad buy on statewide cable for this week including CNN and MSNBC beginning Wednesday morning for Florida A&M University alum Andrew Gillum. The campaign will purchase a six-figure buy in Tampa, Orlando, and West Palm Beach starting the week of July 30.
The ad was shot by Mark Putnam, who was recently featured in POLITICO Magazine. From that piece: “It also was the third Putnam Partners ad in the past two years that made a Democratic military veteran go viral. In 2016, it was Jason Kander, his blindfold and his AR-15. In 2017, it was Amy McGrath, the first female Marine to fly an F/A-18 fighter jet in combat, launching her upstart candidacy in Kentucky’s 6th District. This year, it’s Hegar…Putnam, 54, is known best for his exacting work for red-state Democrats and his half-hour prime-time special for Barack Obama in 2008.”
“What’s impossible? The son of a bus driver becoming Mayor of the capital city, or that Mayor standing up against the NRA so that guns couldn’t be fired in city parks and winning? How about running for governor and being the most progressive Democrat who would invest a billion dollars in education and create Medicare for All? Is it impossible to come from nothing, be outspent 10 to 1 and win? Share this, buy a TV ad and prove the impossible.”
