Want another reason why Gov. Rick Scott will be tough to beat?
His media operation is clicking on all cylinders. Not only is he making headline-grabbing appearances across the state announcing how his budget will help communities. (He got coverage in Jacksonville announcing a highway ramp!). He is also making statements like the following which will be all over the news tonight and tomorrow:
“You know right now, this is the first day of sequestration. I don’t believe Congress or the President should continue to get paid while they haven’t solved this problem. We’ve had to balance our budget in our state. We’ve had to watch how we spend money. We’ve had to live within our means. And we didn’t do it with a meat cleaver; we did it with a scalpel. We watched what we could do agency by agency. The federal government needs to do the same thing. They should not be paid while they don’t solve this problem.”
I don’t think there is one out of hundred Floridians that will argue with him on this one.
