By JAVIER MANJARRESFlorida Governor Rick Scott continues to campaign around the state for his 2014 re-election campaign, this time in the rural north Florida city of Graceville, where some 100 local residents, mostly Democrat voters, attended the meet and greet with the Governor.
Republicans are outnumbered 2 to 1 by Democrats in this part of Florida, but these Democrats, better known as “Dixie-Crats,” vote Republican, and helped elect Scott in 2010.
“There’s nobody in the state who should not be a Republican,” Scott said, from small business owners to newly arrived immigrants reaping the benefits of Republicanism. “But if we don’t tell our story, it’s our fault if everybody doesn’t vote our way.”-Tampa Bay Times
The Democratic Party is still waiting to see who else will jump into their gubernatorial primary. So far, State Senator Nan Rich is the only formally announced candidate, while former Florida CFO, Alex Sink still considers another run for Governor.
Meanwhile, former Republican turned Democrat Charlie Crist, inches closer to announcing that he will run for governor, a role that he abandoned in 2010 to run for the U.S. Senate.Share and “Like” the story below. Leave us a comment.
