Governor of Florida Rick Scott governor thank you so much for joining.
Joining us and is very important evening before your primary -- tell us you give us a bird's eye view all of the race so far as you see it.
Well clearly -- everybody's figured out for is really important everybody's down here there's big crowds.
Now you have to your heart goes out to Rick santorum's dollar fell.
But news in there having big crowds.
The I think it's gonna come down to.
Who has the right plan for building jobs you know when I -- made when I ran it was about jobs and implements come down from twelve to nine point 9%.
But we still have 9000 people out of work and it's about jobs I he had a job worried about keeping it.
If you have a job you -- have some may help you get one and we need a federal partner it's gonna help us do we've done in Florida reduce taxes reduce regulation.
Run a state like Iran and business business we have this -- together federal government -- governor which one is it then if it's the clear front runners right now our news and that Mitt Romney.
Which one is the best for -- and in terms of jobs in Florida's economy.
The and they both as you know I haven't endorsed -- both have a and they both have a jobs plan and input and involves pain that are reducing taxes.
Producer regulation the part of this is you've got to go sell yourself to the public.
In my case I had seven steps to 7000 jobs.
I think what they've got to be doing out there every -- -- -- -- have got three steps -- have something to say these are three or five things and then do because that's what people relate to.
S but right now looks like Mitt Romney's got the lead.
Italy's post polls showing up.
In so I think he's got his message out better in Florida -- it has nothing do with the the negative as well sir I'm I'm aren't gonna let you brought that up Mitt Romney does have.
Or into the -- real clear politics average is about 1111 have point lead.
If you you know again if you take the averages but he -- -- Newt Gingrich has said that's because of what Newt Gingrich classifies its campaign carpet bombing.
Mean does it work so -- north from Florida.
Well I don't think so and the you know people who -- a lot of negative ads but in the end the people when they go to the polls they say I'm gonna vote for something.
They're gonna vote for some -- it's gonna help their family in Florida it's jobs education for your child keep the cost of living low.
So you know we've done it in Florida 141000.
Jobs last year but.
Somebody when these two is gonna go out there and really sell that they've got a better jobs plan and the other one.
That's who I think's gonna win tomorrow parts are let's move on to another topic -- immigration very important to state Florida.
Which one of these two guys has the best immigration policy for the state of Florida.
Well here here's what's Koreans want they want the federal government to do their job with they want is they want the federal government to secure the borders.
They -- the federal government having a immigration policy that makes sense had to have a work Visa program that doesn't put Florida companies that it economic disadvantage to foreign companies.
And then and finally if -- -- interstate.
And our country illegally and -- violating the law.
They shouldn't be here so I think they've they've all talked about it.
I think the -- going to be.
When they get in there river winds are they -- implement -- policy and really do the job secure borders.
Come up with logical policies that Florida companies.
American companies can prosper under which which one would you it -- -- and it -- two very different immigration policies at least as of this date they.
They are -- Newt Gingrich has said.
You know let's let's not send back twelve million grandmothers and bend Mitt Romney -- no let's keep it legal if you're not legal we're gonna send you back.
When I think in the end I think I think that the policy that's gonna work is a policy of securing the border have -- -- immigration policy.
Now I'd I doubt that we're going to as a country want to.
But I think the key years let's make sure that -- fair to American businesses.
Does that make sure we have work Visa program the people -- -- and our country legally.
And go back home if they want to make sure that.
That Americans don't want people to violate the law anonymous do but -- got to be fair we have to be we have to be very fair we cannot there cannot be any racial profiling.
So I think passable this candidates are saying -- -- -- little bit differently.
Right in your very being deemed very political I know you don't want endorse and is trying to dig down now to drill down and -- who would be which would be the best candidate for the state of Florida.
Marco Rubio is gonna play huge in this election a lot of people would say that.
Who whomever he ends up with because he's on a ticket would be the ticket towards beating Barack Obama carried away and -- answer.
-- -- -- rubio is the is -- a great job he's well thought of in Florida he's angry he's done a great job he would be great buys of vice presidential pick.
If one of them picks them I think you'll help them in the race.
But you know what would we want in our state.
-- would be a great.
Partner but we want a president that's gonna say I'm gonna get down to work.
In -- every minute I'm induce these three things.
Picture might all children king in education -- every has an opportunity for job he keep the cost of living as low as possible that's what we're doing.
Unemployment dropped two point 1% we just need somebody in Washington it's gonna say taxes are too high regulation -- is too much trillion dollar debt.
-- are not sustainable that's what we need to our governor -- Sarah Palin.
Who comes on the show quite a bit had some.
Interest thing war of words weighted described in the election so far and it specifically with regards the Florida take a listen please.
That agent of change who has promised to shake up that's been Newt Gingrich.
-- -- to gets Sheen at this point in order to.
Defend our republic and save what is what is good and secure prosperous about our nation somebody.
Who's engaged in sudden and relentless reform and isn't afraid to -- that shake up that establishments out.
If for no other reason Rage Against The Machine vote for note.
-- a liberal -- note.
On that nor expect the the last part -- like -- annoy a liberal both renewed.
And I think is gonna come down between now Governor Palin I was an event with her couple months ago she did a great job.
And I -- -- right from the standpoint that we want somebody that's gonna change the direction the country.
I think Americans couldn't vote the biggest things going to be about jobs but we do want a change we want a positive change -- is gonna say.
Let's run this countries like -- run -- business don't waste money.
Have more accountability.
Don't have trillion dollar deficit she can't do this in business you can do is a country.
-- governor last time you were on our show is prior just prior to the Florida straw poll -- Florida straw vote.
Herman Cain -- that you predicted that whoever won the Florida straw would be the next.
Republican candidate for president her McCain's not in it he's not eligible but today Herman said.
Don't count anyone out after Florida even if Mitt Romney wins Florida McCain is now backing Newt Gingrich will -- -- But weighing in on that.
Well if you look at history that whoever won the straw pull in Florida have won the the nomination.
And so now that was history it didn't happen this year it looks like Florida is going to be is gonna choose it's going to be tough.
I think it would be hard on.
-- if he -- win Florida.
Not to go forward because.
Governor Romney has a good campaign going from the standpoint good organization he's raised a lot of money okay shot -- you want endorsement.
Just albeit I'm just being me and so silly -- -- hear it it sounds like you're leaning towards Mitt Romney.
I'm not lenient you -- I mean for I wish.
I would I would hope.
That nine of them they would quit talking about negatives can say.
Whatever the question is gonna -- you hear my 357.
Things that I'm gonna do that everybody can understand.
To get this economy going again we need jobs so that a lot success in Florida this year this last twelve months we still have 900000 people out of work.
That's what's gonna change that we've got to have some basis things like -- business -- says.
-- and could reduce taxes and reduce in my house hold government accountable that's we expect on these people case of governor Rick Scott thank you so much for -- yen appreciated --
