Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine, a Democrat who recently announced his formal entrée into the race for governor, is hitching his wagon to President Barack Obama and his signature health care reform, the Affordable Care Act.
Levine launched a “five-week, six-figure” statewide radio campaign this week to encourage Floridians to sign up for the health care benefits before the open enrollment period runs out on Dec. 15, according to a press release issued by his campaign this morning.
In the ads, in both English and Spanish, Levine praises Obama and likens himself to another president.
“Like Thomas Jefferson, I believe that here in America, we do have inalienable rights to liberty, life and the pursuit of happiness. I’m adding one more – the right to health care,” he says.
