This morning Palm Beach Post Tallahassee reporter Mike Bender reported on his political blog that during a campaign stop Rick Scott told a Dunedin voter that "Marco has lost momentum."
This apparently has caused great consternation aboard the campaign bus of the Republican candidate for Florida governor.
Campaign staff are insisting that Scott was taken out of context. Interesting, can someone explain how a simple statement like "Marco has lost momentum" can be taken out of context?
The statement does not imply that Scott is not supporting Marco Rubio for U.S. Senate. And most candidates lose momentum at various points of the campaign. Winners overcome those moments. Recent polling has suggested that Rubio's campaign is stalled but that does not mean his campaign is over.
Sounds like a bit of overaction from the campaign staff. Sometimes the best thing to do is take a deep breath and leave it alone. Besides, Bender has Scott's statement on video.
