Rick Scott-led super PAC launches ads supporting Donald Trump



Rebuilding America Now, the super PAC chaired by Gov. Rick Scott, is now up on the air in Florida with two TV ads supporting Donald Trump.

Melissa Stone, a spokeswoman for the group, says the ads are running statewide. The group did not reveal how much money is behind the spots. But a news release said Hillary Clinton's campaign sought to have the outsourcing ad, also running in Ohio and Pennsylvania, taken down.

“Hillary made this stand against keeping jobs in America while speaking to a group in India. Then the Clinton Foundation collected a million dollars from a businessman who attended her speech," Scott is quoted as saying. "Those are the facts that Hillary does not want anyone to see. So, she is trying to have our ad disappear like her emails did. She wants TV stations to pull it off the air."
