Wow. Florida Republicans Mike Haridopolos and Dean Cannon, otherwise known as the Drill, Baby, Drill Twins, have wasted little time fleeing the sinking McCollum Titanic in favor of the lifeboat of desperation that is Rick Scott, the new GOP nominee in the race for Governor.
The Haridopolos statement, from the Orlando Sentinel:
“Allow me to extend my congratulations to Rick Scott on earning the Republican nomination for Governor. I look forward to meeting with the Republican gubernatorial nominee in the next few days. I am interested in the two of us exchanging our views regarding our great state and our visions for Florida’s future.
“As the Republican nominee, Mr. Scott has proven his commitment to this effort beyond a shadow of a doubt, and I respect that tremendously.
“We will now turn our focus and efforts toward Republican victories in November so that we may continue to achieve our common goals of cutting waste, decreasing taxes and decreasing regulations so that we can jump start this economy and create jobs.”
Shorter Haridopolos: Follow the money? Who knows? Groveling is groveling.
It will be interesting to see who gives the marching orders to whom in this new Republican Party Of Florida.
