Gov. Rick Scott Visits All 67 Florida Counties Since Campaign Launch

MELBOURNE, Fla. – Today, the Scott for Florida campaign released its latest video highlighting Governor Scott’s visits to all 67 Florida counties since announcing his bid for U.S. Senate in April. Governor Scott is campaigning non-stop to share his message of Making Washington Work for Floridians, not for career politicians.

Florida families and job creators from Escambia to Monroe County are joining Governor Scott in sharing this message. Volunteers supporting the Governor’s campaign have knocked on more than a million doors so far and Governor Scott has also received unprecedented endorsements from the Florida Police Chiefs Association, 56 total Florida Sheriffs, the National Federation of Independent Business, the Associated Builders and Contractors, the Latin Builders Association, the Manufacturers Association of Florida and the joint endorsement of local, state and national Chambers of Commerce.

Senator Nelson, meanwhile, is worrying his fellow Democrats with his sluggish campaign. A recent Tampa Bay Times article exposed their concerns:

  • “I don’t see the eye of the tiger anymore. He’s just kind of going through the motions and has made some errors — this thing about the Russians hacking into our systems.”

  • “He needs to get a backbone.”

  • “The only access I have to Bill Nelson is when I see him at big party events or fancy dinners. I don’t think he’s making himself accessible to more of the average voters, so all you have to go on is his record.”

  • “People say to me, I’ve never heard of him.”

“While Governor Scott has traveled across the state to meet Floridians face to face and hear their ideas about how to make Washington work, Florida’s senior senator has been missing in action. Bill Nelson sightings in Florida are about as common as UFO sightings, but a whole lot less interesting. Floridians deserve a Senator who will spend every waking hour fighting for them, and when Rick Scott is elected in November, that’s exactly what they’ll get.” – Chris Hartline, Spokesman, Scott for Florida
