A Democratic Party attack ad released Tuesday and targeting Florida's incumbent Republican Gov. Rick Scott features a picture of an abandoned factory that's actually in Detroit.
Story continues below video.
Most of the ad, titled "It's Not Working" and first reported by BuzzFeed
, highlights text about layoffs in Florida running over the picture of the dilapidated factory.
According to the website Shutterstock
, the stock footage is from Detroit – and is even titled "Deserted Factory in Detroit."
Scott and Republican-turned-Democrat challenger Charlie Crist are in a tight race in one of the nation's marquee gubernatorial races, with a Real Clear Politics
average showing Crist ahead by just 1.3 percentage points.
The stats-heavy website FiveThirtyEight
reports that both candidates are "teetering on becoming the least-liked pair of candidates for any governor's race in the past 10 years."
