TALLAHASSE, Fla. - Republican Gov. Rick Scott seeks to soften his image and avoids attacks on Democrat Charlie Crist in the latest television ad in his re-election campaign.
Scott also acknowledges he doesn't have the best relationship with the media in the 30-second ad that will begin airing Saturday.
The ad features Scott's two-year-old grandson Auguste and he says he's not worried about media critics. Instead Scott says he's more concerned about what his grandson will think of him.
The ad shows Scott reading to Auguste and playing with him in the yard. It closes with the boy saying, "Let's get to work, grandpa," and Scott replying, "That's my line."
The political committee set up to re-elect Scott is spending $1 million on the ad.
