Scott for Florida Releases Latest Ad: “Attention Florida”

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, the Rick Scott for Florida campaign released its latest ad, “Attention Florida,” highlighting Senator Nelson’s false attack on Governor Scott’s historic funding for Florida’s education system. Time and time again, Senator Nelson has been confused about the reality of Florida’s education accomplishments over the past eight years. The facts: Under Governor Scott, Florida spends more on education today than at any time in our state’s history, including more on per pupil funding than ever before. Senator Nelson, however, has continued to rely on false attacks because after decades in Washington, he still can’t point to anything he has done for Florida’s students and teachers.

Watch the ad above and see the full script here:

Narrator: “Attention Floridians.”

“Senior Senator Bill Nelson seems to think you’re naive, gullible, uninformed.”
