"A president that promised to bring us together should not be pushing agendas that tear us apart," Scott, the GOP's lone Black member of the upper chamber, says in the ad. "Our best future will not come from Washington scheme and socialist dreams, it will come from you, the American people." 

The remarks were taken from Scott's rebuttal to Biden's speech before a socially distanced, pared-down joint session of Congress earlier this year.

"We are not adversaries, we are family," Scott said. "I am confident that our finest hour is yet to come." 

During his first 100 days in office, Republicans have aimed to paint Biden as beholden to the most progressive arm of his party and unnecessarily growing the size of the federal government. 

The GOP has separately voiced opposition to the White House infrastructure bill and the creation of a congressional commission to examine what led to the Jan. 6 rioting at the U.S. Capitol, a measure Biden has said he supports.
