WMNF Drive-Time News Thursday | Listen to this entire show:
Floridaâ€™s CFO Jeff Atwater says he would Governor Rick Scott in a Republican primary. Before speaking at a Suncoast Tiger Bay luncheon in St. Pete Thursday, Atwater said Scott has done a good job.
â€œWeâ€™ve got a governor and Iâ€™m supporting our governor and I donâ€™t know anybody thatâ€™s talking about [running in a primary against] the governor. I know Iâ€™m asked that question, Iâ€™m sure the Attorney General is asked that question, Iâ€™m sure the Ag Commissioner is asked that question â€“ as far as I know, everyone of us has said the same thing, that weâ€™ve got a governor, heâ€™s done many good things and weâ€™re all in this together for the next cycle.â€
Atwater, who is also a Republican, has made it a priority to cut down on government waste and spending â€“ similar goals as were laid out by Scott during his 2010 campaign.
