Philip Levine announces two Saturday campaign stops

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Philip Levine has a couple of South Florida campaign appearances on his Saturday agenda.

The former Miami Beach mayor will be the keynote speaker at a luncheon hosted by the League of United Latin American Citizens as part of the group’s 2018 Florida State Convention.

The event is being held at the Miami Marriott Dadeland, 9090 S. Dadeland Blvd., and the Levine campaign said the keynote will begin at 12:15 p.m. According to the event website, Democratic Sen. Annette Taddeo and newly elected Democratic Rep. Javier Fernandez will also be in attendance.

After the keynote, Levine will head over to Wilton Manors to “march with supporters and volunteers for tolerance and equality” as part of the Wilton Manors Stonewall Pride Parade and Festival. Levine is slated to arrive at 3:30 p.m.

Festival organizers list the parade start time as 5 p.m., though music and other entertainment will be in abundance along Wilton Drive earlier in the day. More information can be found on the event website.

Levine is one of five major Democrats running for governor in 2018. He faces Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, former Congresswoman Gwen Graham, Palm Beach billionaire Jeff Greene and Orlando-area entrepreneur Chris King.

The primary election will be held Aug. 28.
