Nelson through the decades, as a pro-Scott super PAC pours it on

Another day, another hard-hitting Rick Scott TV ad against Sen. Bill Nelson in Florida's U.S. Senate race.

This time it's the pro-Scott New Republican Super PAC out with a new 30-second ad that literally traces the aging of Nelson from his origins as a 29-year-old state legislator in 1972. Eight separate closeups of Nelson's face appear in the 30-second spot, driving a career politician message.

The statewide ad, backed by a $3.5 million buy, starts this week and is backed by 15-second and six-second digital ads, the PAC said.

"Politician Bill Nelson continues to run for public office, leaving few footprints behind," a male narrator says. "Votes with Hillary Clinton 89 percent of the time. And raises taxes again."
