Florida GOP doesn’t plan to slow focus on Crist, Rich, Sink

in Uncategorized by

With the GOP’s statewide slate apparently set, Republican Party of Florida Chairman Lenny Curry told members there will be no slowdown over the next few months in the assault on potential Democratic gubernatorial candidates Charlie Crist, Nan Rich and Alex Sink, reports the News Service of Florida.

“The message and tactics our communications team will use in the coming months will in fact play a role in shaping the message and the tone of the Democratic primary,” Curry said Friday.

Since May 28, for example, the RPOF has sent out daily releases aimed at Crist, the former Republican-governor-turned-independent-Senate-candidate-turned-potential-Democratic-gubernatorial-contender.

Republican Gov. Rick Scott said the party will remain focused on efforts to boost jobs and education.

“It’s our obligation to get our message out,” Scott said.

“We all have our stories, we just have to get them out, and if we do, we’ll win every race,” said RPOF Executive Director Juston Johnson.
