Democrats. Think Gov. Rick Scott will be easy to beat next year?
In the latest quarter ending June 30, Scott had more than $12 million in the bank of his Let’s Get To Work Committee.
He raised over $4 million in the quarter. That’s a total of $8.7 million raised this year.
And Scott hasn’t even started a real campaign yet. Let’s Get To Work is the committee formed to benefit his re-election.
The Democrats? They don’t even have a real candidate yet.
Scott’s poll numbers remain dismal. The governor’s team hopes is hoping that money can dirty any Demo candidate enough that voters will again choose Scott.
It remains to be seen.
The bottom line: Democrats have a lot of catching up to do.
