Wire new outside light

I have an exisiting light outside the front door that is controlled on a switch. I am wanting to add flood lights to the corner of the house and wire it to the same light switch as the other outside light. What is the simpiliest way to do this?

Wire new outside light

run a cable from the existing light fixture box and run it to the location where you want the new light.

Wire new outside light

Are you saying that you want the floods to come on and off as the porch light does? It's your money and your house. If you are going to the trouble to tie into the existing wiring of the switch for the front light--why not add another switch for the floods?
