ORANGE PARK, Fla. -- Governor Rick Scott kicked off his reelection big on the First Coast with the first of eight stops planned across the state to get his "Lets Keep Working" theme out in front of voters.
Scott was hosted by Orange Park Volkswagen and a packed showroom while he outlined what his campaign is all about.
"In 2010 it was 'Lets Get To Work' now it is "Lets Keep Working.' We got to keep working to lower taxes, improve education and make sure keep a low crime rate," said Scott.
The Governor said slashing $500 million in taxes this year combined with creating 500,000 jobs and trimming the size of government should be attractive to voters.
Scott won his first bid at statewide office with a slim margin as 70,000 votes separated him from Alex Sink. This time his challenger is former Governor Charlie Crist.
Last week, a Quinnipiac University poll gave Crist a ten point lead over Scott, with Crist at this time getting 48 percent of the vote.
Scott said his message of cutting taxes and creating jobs is the right combination for Florida.
