Ads tie Rick Scott to GOP health care plans



The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is promoting a Google "takeover" ad that seeks to tie Gov. Rick Scott to the GOP health care plan in Washington.

The DSCC said the video will be shown across a full screen and targets mobile viewers and people who consume television lightly. "The ad will reach targeted voters in Florida who comprise key elements of the 2018 midterm electorate, including older, women and swing voters as part of an ongoing six-figure digital ad buy," the group said.

Scott, who hasn't yet formally announced he's running for Senate, has supported an Obamacare replacement but has been harder to pin down on the specifics of the proposals in Washington.
