Scott's 527 debuts with advertising blitz

24

June

Beginning Friday, expect to see a television commercial attacking Bill McCollum courtesy of Rick Scott's new federal 527 political committee, Let's Get to Work.

The $1.5 million buy is the largest single TV ad blitz (through July 2) from an independent political group to date and brings the total spent in the GOP primary to $23.3 million. It will saturated most markets except Miami and North Florida.

Unlike the 527s linked to McCollum, Scott filed the necessary paperwork with the Division of Elections to disclose his part as a fundraiser. And the committee established the required website, letsgettowork.net, though it doesn't yet list donors and contributors.
