Philip Levine opening Orlando campaign office

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Philip Levine is opening an Orlando office, the third Democratic gubernatorial candidate to hang a shingle in the City Beautiful.

Levine’s campaign office formally opens Tuesday at 5 p.m. at 646 West Colonial Dr., a couple miles down Colonial from the East Colonial offices of his Democratic rivals Chris King and Gwen Graham, which are just about a block apart.

Republican gubernatorial candidate U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis also has his primary campaign office in Orlando.

Levine, the former Miami Beach mayor, already has regional offices in Kissimmee, Tampa, and St. Petersburg in the I-4 Corridor.

Also in the race are Democrats Andrew Gillum, who’s holding a town hall meeting in Orlando a couple hours after Levine’s office opens, and Jeff Greene; and Republican Adam Putnam.
