New Rick Scott ad expands ‘Washington change’ theme

Gov. Rick Scott‘s second English-language ad in the U.S. Senate race picks up the term limits theme of his first commercial and extends it toward what Republicans have been claiming of Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, that he accomplishes very little in Washington.

The new 30-second Scott U.S. Senate campaign ad “Results,” which will be airing both on television and on the internet, does not mention Nelson. But like Scott’s first ad it charges that it’s time for change in Washington D.C., while Nelson seeks a fourth term in the U.S. Senate.

The latest ad is backed by a purchase of more than $2 million of airtime, Scott’s campaign stated.

In the commercial, after arguing that successful business people focus on results, and how successful business people need to be in Washington, Scott declares, “If you’re not accomplishing anything, you should not be in Washington.”
