Florida Democratic Party spokesman Sebastian Kitchen released the following statement in response to special interests already lining up to spend heavily to deceive Floridians and defending Rick Scott’s record that left more than half of counties with fewer jobs:

“Special interests supporting Rick Scott cannot erase his record: thanks to Scott’s self-serving politics half of Florida counties have lost jobs and wages are at the bottom of the nation, but he’s used his position as governor to make himself $46 million richer. The only people who have benefitted from Scott’s self-serving politics are himself and his donors.”
