In new Charlie Crist ad, Annette Taddeo speaks directly to working women

in Uncategorized by

Democrat Annette Taddeo appeals directly to women voters in a new video airing today from the Charlie Crist for Governor Campaign.

“Ready” is a 30-second English-language spot where the candidate for lieutenant governor talks of her experience as a working mom. She says that both she and Crist are committed to making life easier for families by giving Florida workers a minimum-wage raise, investing in education, and fighting for equal pay for women.

“While Republicans are talking down to women and telling them to ‘say yes to the dress,’ we’ll continue to talk about the issues that actually make a difference in their lives,” Taddeo said in a statement.

“The fact is, life has gotten harder under Rick Scott – bills have gone up as pay has gone down, our schools are struggling, and women are earning 83 cents on the dollar. Florida families are ready for a governor who will fight for them, not just those at the top.”

“Ready” is now available on YouTube.
