Philip Levine's campaign for governor is underway



Check out the new video with Miami Beach's mayor noting that he is exploring his next step in public service after his term ends in November. Adviser Christian Ulvert said Levine over the next few months "will travel across Florida to listen to Floridians on how best to serve the state he loves. He will be making a final decision on his plans for continued public service in the spring."

Miami Beach is Florida's 29th largest city, with a city manager running day to day operations. Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn, another gubernatorial prospect, leads Florida's third largest city, which has a strong mayor form of government. But Buckhorn lacks Levine's entrepreneurial pedigree or ability to write a $10 million check.
