Scott: Throws right, thinks rightby John Kennedy | April 1st, 2011
Tampa Bay teachers’ groups and other Democratic allies plan to rally against Republican Gov. Rick Scott when he throws out the first pitch at tonight’s season-opening, Rays-Baltimore Orioles game.
But there’s apparently little doubt about what kind of pitch the crafty righthander — and political right-leaner — plans to throw tonight.
“It’ll be either down the middle, or probably more like high — and to the right,” Brian Burgess, the governor’s communications director, said Friday.
Along with the Scott boo birds in the sell-out crowd at St. Petersburg’s Tropicana Field, area Republicans are trying to rally supporters to balance out the numbers at tonight’s game.
