RPOF Hits Obama With Newspaper Ad in Jacksonville
With President Barack Obama in Jacksonville to give a speech on the economy on Thursday, the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) welcomed him to the First Coast with a full-page ad in the Florida Times-Union insisting Gov. Rick Scott’s policies are responsible for the recent economic gains in the Sunshine State.
“I want to welcome President Obama to Jacksonville today,” said RPOF Chairman Lenny Curry in a statement. “While Floridians look forward to hearing what you have to say about the economy, I know that they are much more interested in what you will do to strengthen our economy. After having the second highest jump in unemployment in the country in the four years prior to Governor Scott’s inauguration, his formula of lowering taxes, decreasing regulations and creating an environment friendly for job creators has resulted in Florida having the second largest drop in unemployment in the country. I urge President Obama to take this formula of success back to Washington so that middle class families can look forward to a stronger economy instead of more rhetoric about it.”
