Carlos Beruff launches new TV ad attacking politicians



Republican Senate candidate Carlos Beruff is adding to his arsenal of statewide TV ads.

A new 30-second spot -- called "Teleprompter" -- continues a familiar message from the Bradenton homebuilder's campaign: That he is an "outsider," not a politician.

"The experts want me to read a bunch of political crap off this teleprompter," he says. "Here’s what I have to say. Obama’s a disaster and Washington politicians are worthless."

The ad also echoes Donald Trump's basic argument: "How about we take our country back and put America first?" Beruff asks.

It's the third statewide TV ad he's launched this month.

He's running against U.S. Reps. David Jolly, R-Indian Shores, and Ron DeSantis, R-Ponte Vedra Beach, Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera and Orlando defense contractor Todd Wilcox in this August's Republican primary to replace Sen. Marco Rubio.
