Gov. Scott launches $2.2 million statewide ad buy, 'Families'



Gov. Rick Scott's campaign said Tuesday it's spending $2.2 million on a statewide TV ad buy with a new spot, called "Families," that highlights key elements of Scott's biography. The spot shows Scott from side angles discussing his father's car being repossessed and the work ethic he acquired from his mother, and ends with him saying: "I want people to have the same shot I had."

"Rick Scott wants Floridians to think he’s on their side, when in fact he has spent his whole career rigging the system so that only he and his special interest friends will profit,” said Florida Democratic Party spokesman Joshua Karp.
“Rick Scott’s hypocrisy is on full display and no amount of campaign cash can change that. Rick Scott’s priority is where it’s always been — helping the wealthy special interests and his campaign donors, not Florida’s middle class families."
