Scott, Romney Team Up in St. Augustine
Gov. Rick Scott joined Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney at a campaign stop on Monday morning in St. Augustine and while he continued to talk up Florida’s economy, he said his job would be easier if Romney were in the White House.
“We cannot afford another four years of Barack Obama, his policies have failed us,” Scott said in introducing Romney. “Our economy nationally is struggling … here in Florida, even though we have a president that is making it much, much more difficult to do well, in Florida our economy is getting better. Our unemployment has dropped faster than any state but one in the past 18 months, 127,000 private sector jobs. Just think if we had a president … and a vice president that knew that you build business, government doesn’t build businesses. Think what this state could do then, if we had the right president.”
