Gov. Scott To Come To Panama City


Now that the legislative session is over, Gov. Rick Scott is hitting the campaign trail.

He started Monday in Jacksonville and has a stop planned for Panama City this Thursday.

During the stop at Bill Cramer Chevrolet GMC, the governor will promote the rollback of $400 million in vehicle registration fees this fall.

It's the centerpiece of a $500 million tax cut package he plans to use to hammer has Democratic challenger Charlie Crist.

"I've worked hard to fix all of his wrongs. I walked in with a $3.6 billion budget deficit he left me," Gov. Rick Scott said. "He added state debt, increased it by $5.2 billion. But what we've done. we cut your motor vehicle fees 54 percent, $400 million back in your pocket. Also have sales tax holiday for hurricane, for back to school and we stopped his 15 percent increase in tuition."

Meanwhile, Crist is enjoying the latest polling figures from Quinnipiac University, that shows him with a 10 point lead over Scott.

He was in Miami Monday talking about why he wants to become governor again.

"What's happening is I'm trying to become governor again because we need a governor with a heart," Crist said. "And I know that and I know God is my creator and it's real important I think that we have an opportunity to get people back into the governor's mansion that really have a heart, our people - and care about our people.

The governor will be a Bill Cramer Chevrolet from 6 to 7 Thursday evening.
