Jeff Greene airs first 2 Senate ads

in Statewide by

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.

Peter Schorsch is the President of Extensive Enterprises and is the publisher of some of Florida’s most influential new media websites, including,,, and Sunburn, the morning read of what’s hot in Florida politics. SaintPetersBlog has for three years running been ranked by the Washington Post as the best state-based blog in Florida. In addition to his publishing efforts, Peter is a political consultant to several of the state’s largest governmental affairs and public relations firms. Peter lives in St. Petersburg with his wife, Michelle, and their daughter, Ella.
