Romney Asked Scott to Downplay Job Gains

Mitt Romney's presidential campaign asked Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) "to tone down his statements heralding improvements in the state's economy because they clash with the presumptive Republican nominee's message that the nation is suffering under President Obama," Bloomberg reports.

"What's unfolding in Florida highlights a dilemma for the Romney campaign: how to allow Republican governors to take credit for economic improvements in their states while faulting Obama's stewardship of the national economy. Republican governors in Ohio, Virginia, Michigan and Wisconsin also have highlighted improving economies."
