Minneapolis Mayoral Candidate Shirtless in New Ad

Jeffrey Alan Wagner/Getty Images(MINNEAPOLIS) -- The Minneapolis mayor’s race is in full swing, and one candidate is going to some extremes to catch the attention of voters.

Jeffrey Alan Wagner, the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party candidate, is one of 35 people running for the office.

The political newcomer and relative unknown released an ad this week that starts with a young woman talking straight to the camera, “You know what I want? A Minneapolis mayor that really represents the people.” Next, Wagner -- shirtless, underwear clad, dripping wet from a swim, and carrying a coffee mug -- emerges from the water.

“Over a million dollars is going to be spent to become the mayor of Minneapolis, a $100,000-a-year job,” Wagner says. “I’m cool with making $100,000 a year. I will not take money from the developers, I will not take money from the political angle. I will not even go to the strip clubs anymore. Wake the f*** up!”

On his campaign’s Facebook page, Wagner says that he’s campaigning to stand up for “Minneapolis Renters.”
