What Floridia’s elected officials and politicians are saying about the third presidential debate

Governor Rick Scott:

“Tonight’s debate sealed the deal for Mitt Romney.  A strong foreign policy is ineffective without a strong economy at home.   Mitt Romney has now made the case for both.  As I’ve said throughout the 2012 campaign, the candidate who spells out a compelling vision for fixing America’s economy will win not just Florida, but the White House and leadership of the free world.”

Former U.S. Senator George LeMieux:

“Governor Romney sounding and looking more presidential than President Obama.”

Congressman Dennis Ross:

“Romney calm, poised and balanced. Presidential.”

Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz:

“Someone needs to tell Mitt Romney that “Me Too” is not leadership. We already have Barack Obama leading the way.”

Florida CFO Jeff Atwater:

“We can’t afford a president who apologizes and ignores Israel. We need a president who shows strength. The choice is clear: Mitt Romney.”

Florida GOP Chair Lenny Curry:

“Tonight, Mitt Romney drove home his argument that America has struggled over the past four years to maintain it’s place as a world superpower, but he forcefully explained his vision for how to restore America’s strength at home and abroad.   We can do better with Mitt Romney at the helm.”

State Rep. Chris Dorworth (via Twitter):

“Romney killed it on the answer on the trade war with China. Very presidential. Obama’s response? Not so much.”

State Rep. Jamie Grant (via Twitter):

“Undecided voters bored by “nonconsequential” things like Syria.”

State Rep. Doug Holder:

“Obama looks like he knows he is getting a spanking.”

State Rep. Will Weatherford:

“Great debate tonight. I thought Gov. Romney showed substance, style and a firm grasp of America’s opportunities!”

Miami Dade Commissioner Esteban Bovo (via Twitter):

 Wow a #Debate2012 in Florida and no mention of Cuba, Mexico, Haiti and the rest of Latin America. Too much time on Mid E.
