Rick Scott’s latest TV ad takes Charlie Crist to task on jobs

in Uncategorized by

Gov. Rick Scott attacks former Gov. Charlie Crist on jobs and the economy in a new TV ad released by the Republican Party of Florida.

“Right Direction” is the 30-second spot featuring Scott speaking to a group of workers about Crist’s jobs performance.

“Charlie Crist lost 832,000 jobs when he was governor,” Scott says. “But not today. Today we are heading in the right direction.”

“Rather than stay and fix the mess he created, (Crist) tried to run away to Washington to further his own political career,” said RPOF chair Leslie Dougher in a statement Wednesday. “But from day one, Rick Scott has focused on solutions that help all Floridians. He’s cut taxes 40 times, including $500 million this year, and the results speak for themselves.”

Dougher added that Florida has created over 600,000 jobs in the past last three years.

“We’re not done yet,” she added. “Rick Scott’s action – not Charlie Crist’s empty talk – has helped Florida head in the right direction.”

“Right Direction” will begin running on Thursday, and is now available on YouTube.
