Speaking from her campaign headquarters in Ybor City, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink today officially introduced what she described as an "unprecedented" two minute campaign ad that takes down Rick Scott over his previous business scandals at HCA/Columbia and Solantic.
The ad will begin airing on three Tampa Bay television stations beginning Wednesday night.
"It takes more than a 30-second ad to detail my opponents long record of unethical business practices, and even fraud investigations and criminal investigations," Sink told reporters Monday morning. Watch for yourself below:
After the ad was shown, Sink was asked if she isn't going back on her word at the beginning of the general election, where she aired an ad called "Get Real," that parodied the incessant negative campaign that Scott indulged in with Bill McCollum for the GOP nomination.
"This is tough. But it's tough because it's full of facts," she countered. "It's nothing more than a summary of my opponent's background which has been well documented, and it's important for Floridians to understand they're going to make an important decision about what kind of governor they want to have, what kind of character and integrity...and the voters need to know about this."
Obviously, the Sink camp doesn't believe that the majority of voters do understand this, hence the ad. CL asked if perhaps a good chunk of the public does know about it, but has compartmentalized it with all of the other issues that go before deciding who to vote for.
