The ads are bio spots (below), with one strangely saying he will "defend the Millennium Scholarships" (the Legislature decides where that money goes) and will recover $50 million "stolen from our classrooms," a reference to this earlier misfire by him. Schwartz recently was pummeled by Democrats for essentially not understanding the state general fund, which he said in a speech was "...
