Rick Scott's Special Interest Servant, Jimmy Patronis, Declares Candidacy for Florida Chief Financial Officer
In response to Jimmy Patronis' decision to run for CFO, Florida Democratic Party Communications Director Johanna Cervone issued the following statement:
 
"Now more than ever, Floridians need a competent, experienced Chief Financial Officer to tackle the economic challenges created by years of disastrous Republican policies. Jimmy Patronis—Rick Scott's handpicked yes-man—has no applicable qualifications to be CFO. In fact, Jimmy Patronis is best known for serving the special interests that fund Republican candidates. The consensus around the state since his appointment is that he is a terrible choice for CFO, and Rick Scott is doing everything in his power to get him elected. In typical Rick Scott fashion, he has put his own interests over Florida families, and has set-up an unqualified crony to run for one of the most important positions in the state."
