Billionaire Jeff Greene (D), who has spent $25 million of his own money on the Governor’s campaign has reportedly cancelled has last statewide television buy just as the primary is approaching on August 28th. Clearly, Mr. Greene sees no path to victory for himself, which renders further spending to be a waste.
The move could be a help to Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine. Clearly leading the race before Greene got in – the latter man’s support seemed to be coming from Levine’s constituency, thus allowing former Rep. Gwen Graham to snatch first place in most polling – Levine has been gaining at the end to make the race very close. Greene effectively conceding could drive some of those votes back to Levine and possibly change Tuesday’s outcome.
