Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., says Republicans can learn from President Donald Trump’s victory in Florida.
Scott made his comments Friday in a column posted by Fox News.
“President Trump’s decisive election victory in my home state of Florida offers an important lesson for Republicans nationwide: If we show voters that Republicans are the party of working-class Americans, a party that reaches out to people of all races and creeds, and a party that fights for equal opportunity for all we will win in future elections,” he said.
“For years, Democrats and pollsters have wrongly predicted Democratic wins in the Sunshine State, including in my successful races for governor and the U.S. Senate on the Republican ticket.”
He maintained people move to Florida because they wans lower taxes and small government. He maintained they also want to “escape socialism” and raise strong families.
“People — including many fleeing communism and socialism in Latin America and elsewhere — have moved to Florida because they don’t want to live under the economic policies that the left is increasingly embracing in this country,” Scott said.
“President Trump had incredible success in Florida because his message resonated with this diverse coalition of voters who don’t neatly fit into the pundits’ and pollsters’ conception of the political world. And he worked to earn votes in my state — a necessity that Florida Democrats seemingly forgot about decades ago.”
And he added: “All this explains why the success of Florida Republicans, including the president, is a model for Republicans across the country.”
