Is California better than Florida?

Is the West Coast truly the “best coast?”

According to Stephen Lawson, rapid response director for Rick Scott’s re-election, the answer to those two questions is a disappointing “Yes!”

Lawson tweeted this morning that he’s “wheels up to Cali” followed by the hashtag #WestCoastIsBestCoast

Here at SaintPetersBlog, we wonder if Governor Scott agrees with Lawson that the West Coast is the best coast? It’s doubtful.

Lawson’s tweet is further proof that Scott’s campaign and the Florida GOP is increasingly staffed by out-of-state political mercenaries. Better get to know them now, they’ll be on to the next campaign before the yards signs are picked up.
