Rick Scott is staking his campaign for U.S. Senate on one issue, term limits, but it turns out, he can’t even stick to his poll-tested spin.
Yesterday, Rick Scott hypocritically refused to call on long-serving Washington Republican Senators to retire after two terms.
Why won’t Rick Scott call on Republican insiders who have served multiple terms to retire — only his political opponents? Under Rick Scott’s plan, Senators should retire after two terms. So, why is Rick Scott refusing to call for these Republican Senators to retire:
Orrin Hatch, Chuck Grassley, Mitch McConnell, Richard Shelby, John McCain, Jim Inhofe, Pat Roberts, Susan Collins, Mike Enzi, Mike Crapo, Lisa Murkowski, Lindsey Graham, Lamar Alexander, John Cornyn, Richard Burr, John Thune, Johnny Isakson, Bob Corker, John Barrasso, Roger Wicker, Jim Risch, Roy Blunt, Jerry Moran, Rob Portman, John Boozman, Pat Toomey, John Hoeven, Marco Rubio, Ron Johnson, Rand Paul, Mike Lee.
“You can smell Rick Scott’s swampy hypocrisy from a mile away. Despite making term limits the only talking point of his campaign, Scott thinks term limits should only apply to his political opponents,” said American Bridge spokesperson Joshua Karp. “Scott is literally raising campaign cash from long-serving Republican Senators to run ads condemning career politicians. It doesn’t get swampier than that.”
Watch Rick Scott squirm when questioned yesterday about whether Mitch McConnell should retire. Last month, Scott dodged a similar question 4 times in a row.
