Tampa Trib endorses Bill McCollum

in Uncategorized by

The Tampa Tribune in its Sunday editions endorsed Bill McCollum for governor over Rick Scott. The editorial declared:

Scott’s “Let’s Get to Work” campaign has been based on his effective, if vague, TV commercials that underscore his outsider status. The message plays well during a year when many are fed up with the status quo.

But there is no reason for Republicans to be fed up with McCollum. He has been an able attorney general who initiated programs against gangs and Internet predators. He is leading the attempt to have President Obama’s health care law declared unconstitutional.

Voters can evaluate what McCollum has done, while Scott essentially says, “Trust me.”

Floridians have no reason to do so.
