Scott Spends 6 G's On Ads Trashing California
Die-hard conservatives may be cheering Gov. Rick Scott for trashing California Gov. Jerry Brown on his home turf, and critics may not be happy Scott spent nearly $6,000 in taxpayer money to do it.
The public-private business recruitment arm, Enterprise Florida, says it paid $5,747 to run the radio ads in San Francisco and LA ahead of Scott’s three-day, Golden State tour.
The ads skewered California’s minimum wage hike in hopes of enticing employers to come to income-tax free Florida. Brown shot back with a statement painting Scott as a climate change denier.
