Billionaire and Democratic Senate candidate Jeff Greene is hitting the airwaves with two ads depicting him as a political outsider and successful businessman.
Greene, who earned his riches betting on the real estate market’s rise and fall, is spending more than a million dollars on the statewide ad campaign that begins Tuesday.
In both, he highlights the fact that he isn’t a politician.
In one, Greene says, “I’m tired of career politicians who are only worried about their own jobs.”
Greene entered the Senate race less then three weeks ago, challenging front-runner Kendrick Meek, who is serving his fourth term in the U.S. House. The primary is Aug. 24.
Gov. Charlie Crist is running as an independent candidate and former House Speaker Marco Rubio is the likely Republican nominee.
