With a heady surge of voter approval over his handling of the voter purge, and a recent decision by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to give the state access to its immigration list, the Republican Party of Florida sees a message moment.
They want Floridians to spread the word that Gov. Rick Scott, whose approval ratings have been like quicksand, has had a victory.
In a letter to RPOF supporters today, Gov. Rick Scott does something rare in politics. He doesn't ask for money. Instead, he touts the "significant victory for the integrity of our election system" and asks people to spread the word on social media.
Mark Ferrulo of Progress Florida sees the message as something else. "That certainly removes whatever veneer of non-partisanship was left on this affront to democracy and blatant attempt to disenfranchise voters they’d prefer not vote,'' he said in a statement.
