On this week’s “Florida NewsMakers,” Republican Party of Florida Chairman Lenny Curry sits down with Sachs Media Group’s Alia-Faraj Johnson and charts the course toward Florida’s 2014 gubernatorial race.
Florida’s 2014 governor’s race is underway and RPOF chairman Lenny Curry says he’s confident his party will maintain control. “Rick Scott is our incumbent governor, Rick Scott is going to be our nominee, our party is going to emerge unified into the ‘14 election cycle,” Curry says. He insists the party remains unified behind the Governor, despite Scott’s call for Medicaid expansion in the face of opposition from some conservatives. “It’s the law of the land, he was faced with a set of circumstances, no good choices, and he made the best decision he could with the data in front of him,” Curry says. In their conversation, he and Faraj-Johnson also discussed the possibility of former Governor Charlie Crist challenging Gov. Scott for his old job. Curry addresses those issues, former Gov. Jeb Bush and more on “Florida NewsMakers.”
