Black Lives Matter activist Deray McKesson is running for mayor of Baltimore. In his debut campaign ad, Deray enlists his father, Calvin McKesson, to help him on his mission in a new ad video. Calvin, a recovering addict over 20 years clean, explains why his son is the best person for the job.
“Politicians make promises. We don’t need promises anymore we need action,” says the elder McKesson in the two-minute clip, titled “Love Is The Why.” Check it out below. Do you think Deray makes a good candidate?
Meet Calvin, my father.
I'm running to be the 50th Mayor of Baltimore.
Together, we will win.https://t.co/gq2IshlIjF
