Republican Agriculture Commissioner candidate Denise Grimsley is out with her first television commercial touting her experience as a legislator, farmer and nurse.
In the ad titled “Get it Done” Grimsley discusses an issue she championed this year in the Florida Senate – those annoying calls from telemarketers. Grimsley passed legislation that now allows phone companies to block spoofed numbers that give the impression you’re answering a local call, when in fact it may be from another country.
The commercial also talks about Grimsley’s broad support from law enforcement and first responders including 35 sheriffs.
It describes her as a third generation farmer and first generation nurse who is a conservative “pro-life, pro-gun and anti-tax” candidate.
Grimsley is seeking to become the first elected female state agriculture commissioner. She faces state Representative Matt Caldwell, former state Representative Baxter Troutman, and retired Army Colonel Mike McCalister in the August 28 Republican primary.
