Gov. Rick Scott Launches Campaign to Rebrand Republican Party
Republican Florida Governor Rick Scott on Wednesday said dismantling government regulations is the best bet to jumpstart the U.S. economy.
â€œIf we are going to get this economy going, the biggest thing you can do, tax cuts are very important, but itâ€™s really deregulation and streamline the permeating process,â€ the governor said during an interview on the FOX Business Network.
Gov. Scott wants to take his message of deregulation nationwide through a series of ads he is chairing as part of a new super PAC that aims to rebrand and reinvent the Republican Party.
â€œI think the Republican Party should be the party for young people, open economy verses a closed economy, open government, open choice in school, open choice in health care, all these things. Itâ€™s a winning proposition,â€ he said.
Scott said he plans to carry the same message nationwide that won him many of the Hispanic and younger voters in Florida, a message he said they find of great importance and value.
â€œYou take the Hispanic voter. They want to live the same dream we have. The dream is having an economy [that] is open to them where some regulation is not preventing them from starting a business or being hired.â€
