Former Representative Allen West told the Tampa Bay Times that Governor Rick Scott is in trouble with the Tea Party for supporting expansion of Medicaid.
Said West: “I think when you say you’re gong to stand something then you kind of back off .. but there are other Republican governors who did the same thing. It’s kind of making people question, ‘Really, where is your backbone?'”
He added: “It does make him vulnerable. I’m being honest with you. Because it’s a fiscal conservative issue. Will the governor be able to go out and defend once he hits the campaign trail, we’ll have to see.”
