Brad Drake released a new TV spot on Monday as the “proven conservative,” in his race to return to the Florida House in District 5.

In the 30-second ad, Drake starts by saying that in Northwest Florida, “We look out for each other.”  The DeFuniak Springs Republican adds that voters sent him to Tallahassee to protect values, fight Obamacare and liberals, as well as protect Second Amendment rights.

“I have never wavered,” Drake says, “and I’ve never been shy about fighting for you.”

After two terms in the House, Brad Drake bowed out from re-election after 2012 redistricting to allow fellow Republican Rep. Marti Coley could finish her last term in the seat covering Holmes, Jackson, Walton, Washington counties and part of Bay County.

Brad Drake faces Jan Hooks for the HD 5 GOP primary.

The ad is also available on YouTube.
