RGA features Rick Scott in "American Comeback" web spot

From an email:

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Republican Governors Association today launched the next video of the American Comeback project, a national advertising effort designed to tell the success stories and accomplishments of Republican governors.

The newest video of the American Comeback project features Florida Governor Rick Scott. As governor, Scott readily calls upon the struggles his family experienced throughout his childhood as a driving force behind his resolve to create more jobs, more opportunity and more prosperity for the people of Florida.

“I don’t know my natural father. My mom got remarried a year or so after I was born. My adoptive father had a sixth-grade education. They struggled for money. I grew up in public housing,” said Governor Scott. “But I lived in America, and I had every opportunity there was.”

“I want our state to be number one:  the number one place for your family to get a job, the number one place for your children to get a great education,” added Governor Scott. “We’re going to have the jobs. We’re going to have the most growth.

“My mom and my dad wanted something better for me, and I want people to have the same shot I had,” said Governor Scott. “Republican governors are driving America’s comeback.”

The American Comeback project will grow to include more videos focused on individual Republican governors, their personal journeys and the progress they’ve made toward bringing prosperity to their states.
