Scott Draws Large Crowd of Supporters in Bradenton and Sarasota Stops

Published Wednesday, September 3, 2014 12:07 am

BRADENTON — "Barack Obama and Charlie Crist have a lot in common; they both think that money grows on trees," Florida Governor Rick Scott told supporters at a campaign stop at Walt's Fish Market in Sarasota on Monday. The governor visited the iconic eatery on South Tamiami Trail, which has served Sarasota since 1918, as part of his Let's Keep Working tour.


Scott told those in attendance that he planned more than a billion dollars in tax cuts over the next two years (see video at bottom of page). Sarasota has been a strong base of support for Scott, both in terms of fundraising and votes. In 2010, the governor bested Alex Sink by 5 percent among Sarasota County voters, a much wider margin than his statewide average.


Earlier Monday, Scott made a stop at VizCO-US Inc, a plumbing products company on Ninth St. W. in Bradenton. In Bradenton, Scott gave the same stump speech to a slightly smaller crowd. Joined by campaigning Republican AG Pam Bondi, Scott recognized local Republican politicians including BOCC members Robin DiSabatino, John Chappie and Larry Bustle, as well as Palmetto Mayor Shirley Groover Bryant.

Why vote between 2 known liars? Florida, we are fortunate enough not to
be stuck picking one liar or the other this time. We actually have an
alternative. Take advantage of the opportunity. Adrian Wyllie deserves
my vote. He is a honest average Floridian just as you and I , that is
willing to stand up and do something for the interest of all of us here
in Florida. The other candidates both Republican and Democrat are owned
and controlled by special interest, like puppets and will lie to your
face to gain your vote, then continue the same old agenda that we
complain about year after year. Time to get off this merry-go-round,
election after election, thinking it will be any different. Take a
stand, vote for the candidate that loves this state and is willing to
take time out of his life, effort and money to SERVE the people of
Florida and stop voting for these ?paid for? career politicians that are
only out for money and fame and have zero interest in us Floridians.
Even if it?s just for honesty alone, vote for Adrian Wyllie instead of
the other two (Scott/Crist) which are proven liars. The choice is yours
and yours alone, if you want the same old corruption and slap in the
face, go ahead and vote for one of the two puppets (Scott/Crist) OR do
what is right for our (yours and your children?s) future and vote for
Adrian Wyllie. Support him by donating to his campaign, spreading the
word and contribute to the super brochure program which I think is very
powerful. Visit his website today
