As a near three-decade Florida resident, I can tell you that Senator Bill Nelson is a tired old war horse. In fact, Nelson epitomizes the words “career politician.” Nelson must be swept away.
I know Governor Rick Scott from his standing-room-only visits to Cato Institute events in south Florida, especially my all-time favorite Cato masterpiece at the Naples Ritz. This event was a real barn burner thanks to the long-awaited feature appearance by Governor Scott. And Rick did not disappoint, exiting to a full-throated thank you from the packed house. Talk about excitement in the air!
Our family spends all the time we can at Food & Thought, Naples’ pace setting natural foods market and restaurant. Customers often get a chance to see Rick at Food & Thought. I am regularly surprised at how much time the busy governor spends on questions from eager voters from every walk of life. Scott really stands out to me as a people’s leader. Quite a refreshing change from the ho-hum, energy-free Nelson.
Way down in Key West where Debbie and I live, the vote each election is a shockingly close affair, no matter who is running. Key West “turns out.” Debbie and I will work hard to energize the Rick Scott camp, which includes our island city’s small business community, Cuban old liners, and our sizable military force. We’ll get the job done.
Low-tax Florida offers outstanding long-term relocation prospects for business enterprises of every size and magnitude. Florida needs Rick Scott to lay down his aggressive, business friendly, welcoming red carpet on the national level.
No way a Bill Nelson-style tax-and-regulate choke collar of progressivism offers a satisfactory template for risk taking employers.
Florida is all about job creation and innovation, Rick Scott style.
It is so far past time to wave goodbye to the sadly over his head, “old Bill.”
