Rick Baker debuts new campaign ad to woo younger voters



Former mayor Rick Baker's campaign unveiled a reboot of sorts Tuesday with the debut of a new TV ad.

"Diner" shows a group of people at a restaurant extolling the virtues of Baker's two terms as mayor while not realizing that he is sitting nearby. Baker takes off his sunglasses and says, "You ain't seen nothing yet." 

Baker lost by 70 votes to Mayor Rick Kriseman in the Aug. 29 primary. Kriseman's campaign targeted voters who had never voted in a mayor's race before, many of them younger, new arrivals to the Sunshine City.

Is this Baker's attempt to steal some of those voters for the Nov. 7 election?
