Fla docs endorse Bill McCollum



You might think Rick Scott career as a leader in the health care industry might give him some sway with doctors. Nope. The Florida Medical Association PAC today unanimously endorsed McCollum for governor.

“Bill McCollum has been a steady, enduring friend to Florida physicians and patients and an advocate for pro-medicine policies,” said Madelyn E. Butler, M.D., FMA President-Elect and PAC President.  “Bill McCollum continues to stand by Florida’s physicians as we work every day to protect patients’ access to care. He also supports meaningful litigation reform in order to prevent physician shortages in Florida and lower the costs for health care.”
