A new 30-second advertisement titled Vetoed released by Majority Forward, a Democratic group, attacks Florida Governor Rick Scott on his healthcare record. The advertisement asks viewers to “Tell Rick Scott: Stop cutting healthcare. And put Florida families first.”
The advertisement claims Governor Scott is responsible for “slashing home healthcare for seniors,” cutting “vaccinations for kids,” “cutting doctors at rural hospitals,” and he’s also accused of cutting “treatment for opioid addiction.”
In response to the advertisement, Laurene Schenone, Press Secretary of Scott for Florida, commented that “Bill Nelson and his Democratic loyalists’ attempt to cherry-pick information without acknowledging the Governor’s history of fighting for these priorities is just the latest effort to mislead Floridians. Governor Scott’s record is clear: he has secured major investments and legislation to support healthcare services for our state, and unlike Bill Nelson and Congress, he has done this while combatting reckless spending that would harm hardworking taxpayers. With every misleading attack ad Nelson’s friends release, it becomes more and more clear that even after nearly half a century in Congress, there is nothing positive to be said on what Bill Nelson has actually done for Florida.”
Majority Forward is aligned to the Senate Majority Majority PAC.
