Gov. Scott: ‘It’s Florida’s day to win the race’

by Dara Kam | August 30th, 2012

Gov. Rick Scott made it back to Tampa Bay in time to hear U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney cap off the Republican National Convention Thursday night.

Scott left town earlier this week to attend to Tropical Storm Isaac duties, visiting flood-ravaged Palm Beach County and the Panhandle.

“It’s great,” Scott said of his first GOP convention as he made his way through the mobbed floor of the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

“Marco’s going to give a great talk. Jeb gave a great talk on school choices. It’s a Florida night,” Scott said. “It’s Florida’s day to win the race.”

Clad in his signature dark suit and custom-made cowboy boots, Scott eschewed his VIP governor’s viewing box and instead grabbed a seat on the floor alongside the Florida delegation.

“I want to see,” he said.

    One thing I’d like to touch upon is that weightloss system fast can be achieved by the right diet and exercise. People’s size not simply affects appearance, but also the entire quality of life. Self-esteem, depression, health risks, and physical capabilities are afflicted in excess weight. It is possible to just make everything right whilst still having a gain. Should this happen, a condition may be the primary cause. While an excessive amount of food and never enough physical exercise are usually at fault, common medical conditions and popular prescriptions could greatly enhance size. Thx for your post in this article.

    Clint Eastwood blew it. What an idiot and Ann Romney trying to say he was great is even more pathetic.

    It’s great to see so many Democrats stand with Republicans and support Palm Beach County State Attorney candidate Dina Keever over Democratic rival David Aronberg. As Dina Keever has stated many times, this office should not be a partisan race. It’s just nice to see so many voters put away their party hat and do whats right for Palm Beach County. Dina Keever has prosecuted over 250 investigations, while David Aronberg has not once set foot in a court room as a prosecutor. We need a prosecutor as our State Attorney, not a politician. To find out more about what Dina Keever stands for, please check out her website at
