AS EXPECTED! The Florida Dems have responded:
Today, in response to the College Republicans’ demeaning and sexist “Say Yes to Rick Scott” ad, FDP Chair Allison Tant released the following statement:“If Florida women needed another reminder that Rick Scott just isn’t on their side, they got one today. With his latest ad, sponsored by the College Republican National Committee, Rick Scott demonstrates that he doesn’t have a clue what’s important to women, or how to talk to us. As governor, Scott has refused to support equal pay for women and restricted women’s access to health care. Now, Scott equates voting with choosing a wedding dress, diminishing both voting and marriage — it's laughable, demeaning, and sexist.“Politicians like Rick Scott think the key to a woman’s vote is to ignore the issues and talk about about dresses and reality TV. That’s insulting. Rick Scott should take down this ad immediately, and apologize."
