Rick Scott visits Duval County's Republican Women's Club
He received a polite reception, and most of the members were inquisitive and curious about where he stands on several issues.
“I’m fed up with where the country’s going,” Scott told the group. “We’re not following the Constitution. We’re spending money we don’t have.”
Scott, a thin balding man, was dressed in a dark blue suit and spoke quickly. Part of his speech was biographical, but he also highlighted his stance on immigration (“If you’re not legal, you should leave our state.”), taxes, government regulation and guns. He also said he is in favor of offshore drilling, noting it’s “not realistic” to ban the practice.
