A day before Tuesday’s primary election, some of candidate Philip Levine’s campaign signs were vandalized with swastikas.

Levine, who is Jewish and is a former mayor of Miami Beach, tweeted a photo of the signs, which were posted near 66th St. N and Tyrone Boulevard.

In the tweet, Levine said he “will never be held hostage to hatred, or bigotry, or intolerance. Never.”

Fellow Democratic candidates Gwen Graham, Jeff Greene and Andrew Gillum replied and reacted to Levine’s tweet, calling the vandalism “vile” and “hateful.”
