Fla. governor says Romney’s hopes in state hinge on job creation


If Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is going to win in Florida this fall, “it’s all going to be about jobs,” Gov. Rick Scott said Friday. Appearing on the MSNBC show “Morning Joe,” Scott said Romney will need to convince voters in the crucial swing state that he has a plan to create jobs, reports the News Service of Florida. “We need a federal partner,” Scott said. “We need lower federal taxes and less regulation — the same thing we have done here — and that’s going to be the key to the race in November.”
