Florida Gov. Rick Scott, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker pushed the campaign for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Friday as they highlighted their own tax-cutting efforts of their states as opposed to action by the federal government job creation.
Scott also urged Romney to address more of “how you’re going to turn the economy around” on the campaign trail.
“We can’t continue the process that President Obama is taking us down, of higher taxes, more regulation, anti-business attitude, we’ve got to say we like businesses and we want them to succeed in our country,” Scott said. “We clearly do in our states.”
The three governors, who appeared Friday morning on Fox News, were attending a daylong summit with Chinese investors that are traveling the United States.
“We want more investments in our states, all of our states do, we’re all competing, that is what makes us all better,” Scott said. “We’re all talking to them about why they should come to our states and why for sure they should come to our country.
“We have to understand that while we’re all competing for this, we’re competing in a global marketplace.”
