Florida CFO Atwater says he would support Gov. Rick Scott in a Republican primary
Floridaâs 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.
âWeâve got a governor and Iâm supporting our governor and I donât know anybody thatâs talking about [running in a primary against] the governor. I know Iâm asked that question, Iâm sure the Attorney General is asked that question, Iâm sure the Ag Commissioner is asked that question â as far as I know, everyone of us has said the same thing, that weâve got a governor, heâs done many good things and weâre 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.comments powered by Disqus
