The Democratic National Committee released a new ad this week promoting President Joe Biden's recent string of major legislative victories.

The sixty-second spot is narrated by MSNBC anchor Joe Scarborough and pushes a positive message for voters to consider in the final three-month stretch before the hotly contested November midterm elections.

"Look at these Democrats. A 50-50 split Senate and you look at Joe Biden. Suddenly you have this huge climate change plan, this huge plan to lower drug costs, to help Medicare recipients," Scarborough, a former United States Congressman from Georgia who left the GOP to be an Independent in 2017, says of the passage of the landmark Inflation Reduction Act.

Scarborough then contrasts Biden's wins with the draconian 11-point agenda that Senator Rick Scott of Florida, the head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, put forth earlier this year.

Scott has been "talking about increasing costs for Medicare and Social Security and taxing poor and middle-class Americans," Scarborough continues, noting that the American Rescue Plan that Biden signed into law in 2021 "led to the lowest unemployment rate in 50 years."

Scarborough also touts the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, the Protecting Our Kids Act, the Chips and Science Act, the confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as the first Black woman Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, and the Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics Act which expands healthcare benefits for veterans who became ill after being exposed to poisonous substances while serving.

"This has been an extraordinarily successful two years. Any way you cut it, even Republicans have to admit this privately and they are," Scarborough concludes. "It's been a hell of a run."
