71 days into office and President Trump already has what appears to be a re-election commercial hitting Florida airwaves.

It comes as the growing Russian connection and the health care bill defeat are sinking

The president's approval rating is at a new low. Now at 35 percent, according to Gallup.

The Super Pac called "Making America Great Again " produced the ad and a self proclaimed housewife paid for it. Her name is Rebekah Mercer, and she's no ordinary housewife.

Her father is hedge fund manager Bob Mercer and together this father-daughter duo has given millions of dollars to Trump's campaign.

Governor Scott is also engaged in ad warfare, launching a new commercial defending his economic incentive program called Enterprise Florida, which doles out your tax dollars to big businesses to create jobs.

The governor paid for this ad with his political committee called Let's Get to Work.

But some of the same companies who are donating cash to the governor's Let's Get to Work campaign are the same companies who have active contracts with Enterprise Florida, meaning they're using your tax dollars to fund the expansion of the their business.
