Republican Gov. Rick Scott‘s second television commercial of his U.S. Senate campaign is a Spanish pitch touting jobs and tax cuts and heading for Spanish TV.

The ad, “Tanto,” [“So Much”] will be airing on Spanish-language networks and stations in Miami, Tampa, and Orlando. It’s part of a $3 million buy that also includes the English-language ad “Term Limits” that began airing earlier this week.

Scott is taking on Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson in this year’s election.

The ad begins with Scott declaring, in Spanish, “Together we’ve achieved a lot.”

A narrator then  says, ” In Florida, since Rick Scott been Governor, 1.5 million jobs have been created. Taxes have been reduced by 10 billion dollars. In Washington, getting something done has become impossible.”

Scott then finishes, in Spanish, “It’s unacceptable. That’s why I’m running to be your Senator. I know we can do better. I’m Rick Scott and I approve this message. Let’s keeping working. “
