Florida Democratic Party to announce ad campaign on Rick Scott’s “extreme agenda”

in Uncategorized by

State Democrats are launching a significant new offensive against Gov. Rick Scott’s “extreme agenda.”

Today, FDP Chair Allison Tant and Executive Director Scott Arceneaux will announce the beginning of a sweeping digital campaign targeting the Florida governor. The media blitz will include online advertising, social media marketing and print ads.

The focus of this campaign will be a new website dedicated to exposing Rick Scott’s “extreme agenda” as governor.

This comes on the heels of the FDP claiming a failure of leadership of the governor, saying he was “silent and absent” during accusations of the state “warehousing” children in nursing homes.

On Monday, the U.S. Justice Department started a lawsuit against Florida over the treatment of disabled children while the Department of Children and Families is under scrutiny over the recent deaths of five children in nursing home care.

The party leaders will announce the details of the digital campaign and take questions from the media in a conference call at 11 a.m.
