Shelby County Mayor A C Wharton isn't the only Memphis mayoral candidate with a new campaign commercial.
Memphis City School board Kenneth Whalum Jr. took a more informal approach to his latest video. Set against a hip hop beat, the video shows stills of Whalum holding black and white "Whalum for Mayor" posters.
"This is Dr. Kenneth Twigg Whalum Jr. I'm running for Mayor of Memphis," Whalum says over a thumping base. "You know me, let's do this... Let this new track remind you of why I'm running because I represent new Memphis. New movement. New Mayor. New Memphis. Vote Whalum. Peace."
