Rick Scott in Perpetual Election Mode

Are there things we don’t want you to know? Yes. There are things we don’t want to broadcast to our opponents.

Burgess did not identify which of the governor’s constituents they consider “opponents,” and does not seem to realize the election is over. Scott, a newcomer to Florida, is widely rumored to be planning a national run.
