Gov. Rick Scott's campaign released its latest TV ad on Thursday, portraying Sen. Bill Nelson as a reliable Democratic vote.
"How much does Bill Nelson toe the party line? Nelson voted with Hillary Clinton 89 percent … With Obama, 98 percent …," a narrator says.
The ad attempts to undercut one of Nelson's go-to selling points, that he is a common sense politician who can cross party lines. Nelson is a reliable party vote — like Scott assuredly would be if elected — but scorecards over the years have shown he's less fixed than some other Democrats.
PolitFact digs into that area:
Scott's campaign did not say how much money is behind the ad. He's already spent millions compared with almost nothing from Nelson, though the Democrat has gotten outside help.
