Rick Scott is scheduled to tour in major cities across the state this week, beginning tomorrow at a Honda dealership in Brandon. It's all part of his campaign to tout his successes during the just-completed legislative session, which included his number one goal — a $400 million tax cut for Florida motorists who will save on average around $25 when they get their car re-registered.
“Florida families deserve to keep more of their hard-earned money," said the governor in a press release announcing the tour. "When I took office, Florida was deep in the hole and tuition was out of control. At a time when Floridians could least afford it, Charlie Crist raised taxes by $2.2 billion and let tuition climb year after year. This is a victory for Florida taxpayers and I’m going to keep working to make our state the best place in the country to raise a family, find a job, and enjoy every opportunity to succeed.”
But on a conference call, and Florida Democratic Party Vice Chairs Annette Taddeo and Justin Spiller slammed the idea of so-called victory tour, with Spiller claiming the idea was "as misleading as his TV ads."
