Gov. Rick Scott is laying down some air cover with radio spots in advance of his corporate hunting trip to California next month.

The ads in San Francisco and Los Angeles warn of the Golden State losing 700,000 jobs because of Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown agreeing to raise the state’s minimum wage to $15-an-hour by 2022.

Using the classic ad scene of two women talking, the spot notes the minimum wage hike “hurts the same people it was supposed to help” and concludes that California, “is beautiful, but you just can’t afford to live here.”

Before last year’s recruitment trip to California — which was aimed at luring port traffic — Scott accused Brown of running a “tax and spend administration.”
