The Florida Democrats must be grasping for content, because today they held a press conference bashing Rick Scott for urging Floridians to be prepared for hurricane season…. Yes, you read that correctly, democrats don’t want the sitting Governor of the state of Florida to prepare his constituents for potential storms.
It’s flat out false to call the press conference a publicity stunt. Rick Scott has been traveling the state for the last eight years prior, during, and after a storm to ensure Floridians are prepped and ready. Democrats even praised him for his efforts to ensure all Floridians were prepared. State Rep. Shevrin Jones, a Democrat from West Park, tweeted “no time for politics, all truth - @FlGovScott did a great job!”
Meanwhile, Nelson didn’t start preparing Floridians to get ready for storms until last year via twitter (after 30 years in Congress.) He’s really started trying to follow Governor Scott’s lead in an election year to make sure Florida is ready for the season.
Florida Democrats, you’re really grasping at straws with that one.
Elections Bill Nelson
