Florida Governor Rick Scott’s newest political ad is pulling out all the stops and bringing into clear focus what it is that truly lifts people out of poverty — and that’s opportunity, not welfare.

It comes from his his Let’s Get to Work committee, and the Scott campaign is making a big time commitment to it.

“It’s a significant buy: $2.2 million,” Sen. John Thrasher, R-St.Augustine, Scott’s campaign chairman, said, according to the Miami Herald.

Scott gets the message across by giving viewers a glimpse of his own rags to riches story.

“What can I do today that’s going to increase the chance that companies are going to hire more people in Florida?” Scott, at the ad’s end, says he asks himself. “I want people to have the same shot I had.”
