Fresh off a reboot armed with a new slogan, "Jeb Can Fix It," the struggling Jeb Bush presidential campaign's super PAC is purchasing $6.6 million in advertising time on Fox News, the Sunlight Foundation reports.

"According to independent expenditure disclosures that we spott[ed] on Sunlight's Real-Time Federal Campaign Finance tracker, it appears Right To Rise USA is doubling down and going after the Republican base by placing more than $6.6 million… in ads exclusively on the Fox News Channel," the foundation notes in a blog posting on its website.

"The super PAC spent $18,932 producing those commercials, which were placed by a Virginia-based firm known as Oath Strategies, LLC."

The Sunlight Foundation notes that the PAC last week posted a 15-second video onto YouTube titled "Veto Corleone: Whacking Wasteful Spending."

The video is meant to promote a nickname Bush says he earned during his tenure as Florida governor from 1999 to 2007, when he vetoed 2,500 line items.

"They called me Veto Corleone, which was something I was quite proud of," Bush said, PolitiFact reports.

The Fox News ad buy follows $7.6 million in similar purchases for 30-second ads that Right to Rise USA made with local television outlets in October.

The candidate himself sees the super PAC's ad buys as a key part of revitalizing his sluggish campaign.

"We have a great organization — the super PAC that's affiliated with our campaign helping my candidacy's advertising now — I think that will help," Bush told Newsmax TV's J.D. Hayworth in an interview late last month on "Newsmax Prime."

"And, I'm running with a lot heart and a lot of passion and conviction — and we're building a great ground game.

"I'm going to win."
