WMNF Drive-Time News Thursday | Listen to this entire show:
Florida’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.
“We’ve got a governor and I’m supporting our governor and I don’t know anybody that’s talking about [running in a primary against] the governor. I know I’m asked that question, I’m sure the Attorney General is asked that question, I’m sure the Ag Commissioner is asked that question – as far as I know, everyone of us has said the same thing, that we’ve got a governor, he’s done many good things and we’re all in this together for the next cycle.”
Atwater, who is also a Republican, has made it a priority to cut down on government waste and spending – similar goals as were laid out by Scott during his 2010 campaign.
