With primary season now in the rear view, Floridians have 10 weeks left to examine Rick Scott’s record. That’s bad news for Rick Scott, who you may recall isn’t a big fan of being scrutinized. But then again, you wouldn’t be either if you had his record.
Scott was elected four years ago amidst a Tea Party wave, promising to carry out a Tea Party agenda, and delivering on that promise. But these days, Scott’s trying to sell a different version of himself — a version that is clearly undermined by his record — and nobody is buying it.
In honor of the first day of the general election, American Bridge is pleased to bring you a list of the top 5 things Rick Scott does not want to talk about for the next 69 days:
- His record of putting special interests first
- Medicare Fraud
- The aggressively anti-immigrant platform of his 2010 campaign
- Cuts to education funding, specifically Bright Futures scholarships
- His penchant for refusing to answer your relevant, legitimate questions
Stay tuned for more, as American Bridge’s army of camera-toting trackers and researchers will be scrutinizing Rick Scott every day between now and November 4th.
