Scott Uses Robocalls to Tout Accomplishments

With poll numbers showing him the least popular governor in the country, Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) is using automated phone calls to let voters know what he's doing, the Miami Herald reports.

"Political robocalls are nothing new in the final weeks of a campaign season, but for the first time anyone can recall Scott has the state GOP paying for regular recorded calls touting his day-to-day accomplishments. It's part of his continuing effort to bypass the traditional media and communicate directly with voters."

Said Scott: "The benefit is we get our message out. It allows us to tell people what we're doing. Part of my job is let people know what I'm doing all the time."
