FL Dems Statement on Gov. Scott's Refusal to Extend Early Voting Hours Statewide
TALLAHASSEE, FL — Following Florida Governor Rick Scott's refusal to extend early voting hours in the wake of calls from the League of Women Voters, former Senator Dan Gelber and the Florida Democratic Party, the Florida Democratic Party issued the following statement:
STATEMENT FROM SCOTT ARCENEAUX, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE FLORIDA DEMOCRATIC PARTY:
"Once again, Rick Scott has sided against the people of Florida. In rejecting calls for an extension of early voting hours, Scott has failed in his constitutionally obligated duty, broken with the history of past Republican Governors and reminded Florida voters why they continue to hold a negative opinion of this Governor. The people of Florida will not forget his failure to stand up for their right to vote."
