Carlos Beruff releases new ad even with Marco Rubio reconsidering Senate race

Herald/Times Tallahassee Bureau

Even with Florida Sen. Marco Rubio weighing getting back into the U.S. Senate campaign, Carlos Beruff continues to press ahead, releasing a new television ad set to air next week.

Beruff’s campaign has already said publicly if Rubio gets into the race, Beruff is prepared to run against him in the Aug. 30 primary.

“Carlos Beruff has traveled to all 67 counties in Florida, and the people of Florida have made one thing abundantly clear: They value real world experience more than political experience,” said Chris Hartline, a spokesman for Beruff. “They’re sick of career politicians and power brokers in Washington who care about one thing: holding on to power. But the voters of Florida will not obey them. They don’t get to pick our candidates.”
