Scott’s bottom line: “What I did, as governor, is I showed up, and Trump’s doing the same thing.”
By showing up, Scott means relentless community outreach and connecting on issues important to Hispanic voters.
On jobs, for instance, he says, “What I did is I went and announced jobs in all types of businesses, but a lot of the Hispanic businesses, I highlighted them. I created these awards, and I gave the Governor’s Business Ambassador Award to businesses that had added jobs.”
He identified himself with the deep-felt anti-Communism of exile communities. “I did a lot of rallies against Maduro, a lot of events against the Castro regime, and people care,” Scott says. “They walked away from socialism. They’ve had to leave from countries that became socialist.”
