Fla GOP launches response site to Dems



As Democrats prepare to gather at Disney World this weekend for a state conference sure to include more than a few disparaging observations about Gov. Rick Scott and others, the Republican Party of Florida has launched "highlighting the Florida Democratic Party's position as the Party of No, the Party of Dysfunction and the Party of Desperation. The website includes bios of Florida Democratic Party leadership, descriptions of their anti-tax, anti-education, and anti-job creation agenda, and criticism by journalists, liberal activists, and politicians of their own party."

"The Florida Democratic Party is not entitled to its own facts," said GOP Chairman Lenny Curry, who will have a rapid response team on the ground at Disney. "They will attempt to distort Rick Scott's successful record as governor and white-wash Charlie Crist's record as a failed politician who tried to run away to Washington, DC when things got tough. We will set the record straight."
