Florida Chamber ups ad buy to help Bill McCollum



The Florida Chamber of Commerce put more skin in the game to help Bill McCollum win the GOP primary for governor against rival Rick Scott. The group began airing the advertisement (above) last week with a $225,000 buy. This week, the business organization put another $660,000 to keep airing it through Aug. 16. It's the fourth outside group to get involved in the race at McCollum's behest.
