Gov. Scott buys digital ads to promote hospitals agenda



Florida Gov. Rick Scott has already had a statewide bus tour and run television to promote two of his top legislative priorities. Now, the Republican governor in his second term is turning to digital ads to promote another.

Scott's Let's Get to Work Political Committee announced it was launching a statewide digital ad this week that calls on hospitals to be more transparent about their billing practices. Scott made the same issue a key part of a speech he delivered last month in Washington, D.C. before the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative policy think tank.

The new ad follows a statewide television commerical and bus tour in January that Scott used to drum up support for his tax cut plans and his push for the Legislature to set aside $250 million for a job creation fund Scott wants to use to lure more companies to move to Florida. 

Here is Scott's new ad, which is set to begin airing today.
