Florida Gov. Rick Scott just keeps touting his state’s improved economy, even after a Bloomberg report that Romney campaign officials asked him to stop it because it doesn’t help make the presumptive GOP presidential nominee’s case that the country’s gone to hell under Barack Obama. Scott denies he received such a request from Romney – but either way, he continues to hail Florida’s turnaround.
This comes on the heels of Sen. Marco Rubio essentially endorsing President Obama’s decision to halt deportations of young people brought to the U.S. by their parents illegally. Rubio continues to insist that it “feels weird” to deport young people who have grown up here and who consider themselves Americans, sounding like an Obama surrogate as he chides both parties for “politicizing” immigration.
