Nice to know Rick isn't suffering from low self-esteem, because that would make us so sad!
Gov. Rick Scott, the rare statewide politician who doesn't read Florida news, is asking supporters to send a letter to their local newspaper editor praising his work as governor. The letter, of course, would be printed in a paper's editorial section. Scott has yet to sit for an interview with any editorial board in the state.
Scott includes a pre-written letter on his web site that refers to himself as "refreshing" and that he deserves "unwavering and enthusiastic support." A link to the letter was included in an e-mail Scott sent to supporters today boasting that Florida's unemployment rate declined for the fifth consecutive month.
The form letter is set up to be sent to the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel, Jacksonville Times-Union, Orlando Sentinel, Tallahassee Democrat, Tampa Tribune and the Scripps papers along the Treasure Coast.
