Here’s a quick shot-and-chaser for Florida Governor Rick Scott.
SHOT: Claims of a large number of rapes and sexual assaults on college campuses are a “lie” and are being overly dramatized by Democrats for votes, a prominent conservative speaker told more than 700 people at a Sarasota rally aimed at getting out the vote in the governor’s race, reports Jeremy Wallace of the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. Conservative radio host Dennis Prager said on Tuesday night that, much like the so called “war on women” in politics, the “culture of rape” on college campuses is a big lie. … Sarasota Republican Party chairman Joe Gruters … distanced himself from the remarks, saying rape and sexual assaults on college campuses are a serious issue. “And it should never have been part of a political discussion at the rally,” Gruters said.
CHASER: A poll released Thursday gives Democrat Charlie Crist a 14-point edge with female voters over Gov. Scott as they head into the frantic final days of this year’s campaign.
I don’t expect that shot-and-chaser to go down very easily.
