And this is -- flag.
And we've got the man himself -- -- today governor Scott thanks so much.

Okay so you -- -- He is standing by the big call the big pick.
And we're really gonna win that when presidency next year so all I do know is that he's working but we're still gonna have to have the election dynamic I -- I was himself did OK okay -- but we're gonna win because.
The Republican nominee is going to be the woman has not jobs abandoned the -- -- -- this is jobs jobs jobs.
That's -- I -- -- race last year it was that I have got to play in -- my -- for job -- Republican nominee that's who's gonna -- who's got the right man for the job -- Okay now.
Tonight and I want to talk about what's going on down here in Florida is fascinating politics fascinating everything here but tonight on stage you're gonna have.
Heavy hitters Mitt Romney Rick Perry new quinnipiac poll out today that shows Florida voters prefer Romney but -- is right there in the mix.
Are the other way around I'm starting area that carries and the lead between six and nine points but Robby is right there tracking him in Florida.
I think the the wide assumption is.
That the winner that Florida's make or break for either of those guys lose Florida for either one of them in the primary process and they're not gonna make it forward you have to win -- So what -- they -- -- tonight.
What are the words that have to come out of their mouth on the stage right not to talk to this national audience of millions but to talk to the people that thousands of delegates -- got to be participating in the troubled us.
What's your plan for job creation.
How you balance the budget are you -- security what your plan.
Indeed I think we expect now in Florida we expect people have a plan.
No it's not sound bytes that's tell me your plan why he's here playing better than your opponent's plan.
-- so weather's carrier Romney's can be jobs it's going to be jobs plan that's going to be so security is going to be bouncing budget.
The other question of course about Florida and its primary as important as it made me.
There's a threat that because you guys are moving your -- -- you are claimed jumping up into that territory -- problem.
Places like well you know that's it that's all -- that's not what New Hampshire said but the because of you guys moving your date up.
In the calendar.
Bill RNC threatened sanctions you guys and take away your delegates at the convention which ironically is gonna be in Tampa Florida right -- -- -- are you concerned about that black.
Absolutely concerned about them over so that we're -- to the right thing that we need we need to have a proper place we need to we shouldn't lose -- delegates.
We need to have a separate -- I mean thing about this.
Visit you have to -- you win the presidency right you have reportedly you know when the Republican nomination so we should have a separate date we should have as early as possible and we should not -- delegates.
Well -- well -- that you're you're you're on the record now so Romney.
Said in the USA today article today Rick Perry is not electable.
Because of his stance on Social Security.
Romney has been blazing theory on the trail saying forty as you say you can't -- the president -- can't win Florida.
And Romney's basic argument now is -- can't win Florida could these two -- -- of security.
Do you think that's true.
I think I think both of them have to talk about how -- gonna fix it -- look.
We we care about the security in this state we have a lot of people -- also security we want it fixed we wanted viable but you know when you get yourself security statement they tell you -- -- said.
And 6% funded and there will be changes and we want to make sure we understand in Florida what those changes are going to be what's your plan to fix.
As we rely on -- So I'm not on elected.
Know our guys are apparently just get everybody I wanted to plant cut I want -- -- from -- all the candidates are safe how we're you gonna fix.
So security make sure that people can rely on because there are relying on OK now let's talk about the relationship between Washington and Florida.
President Obama is roll it out.
Has rolled out a jobs package -- -- taxes do but that he's that He says can get America back to work.
In his previous stimulus package.
The famous He hugged it out with President Obama took the stimulus money you have -- it.
I mean look we're doing what's good -- -- right all right reed is our money for -- have to remember all that money that we -- government it's our money they take it and they put all the strings on us.
So we care about jobs how do you build jobs and reduce taxes you reduce regulation we ought to do what President Obama -- today.
Send those 33 free trade agreements to congress can approve best jobs in Florida right now OK so if it's some jobs deal comes out and there is infrastructure spending would you refuse would you say no the devil's in the details.
Does it fit with what we're trying to do we care about our ports should be -- shipping capital.
We care about our infrastructure so -- is with -- -- doing that's great if it doesn't we're not gonna do it and I don't wanna create long term obligations in this day.
So you're you're you don't want any unfunded mandates.
Now like the case was with the extended unemployment insurance right in the past we've got some money but it -- you want to spend more.
I like my mom I didn't like tell me what to do is our money -- tells how to spend -- we can do a better job.
Like we care about and we want to do the right thing for Medicaid don't take take our money -- how to spend.
-- -- -- Before your purpose is when -- the the possibility of a government shut down in Washington that basically comes down to.
One point five billion dollars in offsets spending for FEMA.
This matters a lot to Florida could you guys need -- heck out of FEMA there're always FEMA needs in Florida -- you are a stringent fiscal conservative.
I know that I've -- -- record I know what you do but don't you just want to get this bill through congress and get FEMA funding in -- before hurricane season it's just.
They they they should do the right thing for -- but you know.
Makes the long term decisions -- balance our budget we've got to balance this budget we.
You know I got attacked because I said yeah that we debate in August was not about raising debt ceiling is about spending thing about it.
If He had a son that was spending too much money would you be excited because -- -- lend more money.
Because -- stop spending money.
Right stop wasting money spend it on the right thanks.
-- is a logical thing to spend it on but there's a lot of things that don't make any sense.
-- so as it relates to this continuing resolution with this one point five billion dollar fight the Democrats are having.
What are you telling your members of congress in Florida when you say you say just vote for it get this thing done so that we can move on -- what.
-- I think they argue every every opportunity they have to reduce federal spending that's wasteful we ought to take advantage of that opportunity because it's gonna come back and -- -- down -- -- I'm gonna pay for -- you're gonna pay for our kids can pay for a -- kids -- there is that the Iraqis we've got to be fiscally responsible.
We're doing in Florida are -- you know our credit rating would improve this year was negative now stable.
There's is lower than say the -- is now well that's what I was gonna ask you and whether or not you know when you came in.
It was like rough reentry it was like you can you came in and you could just it was like the poll numbers went all whopper jawed.
Everybody got riled up you started taking on unions go on expanding fight fight fight and it was a real brouhaha down here.
Now things seem to be kind of cool and -- a little bit and jobs are coming back.
Yeah it's too young people are seeing it works yeah -- know -- -- -- government spending we I want to which they.
3.4 plus billion dollar budget deficit we have a surplus now we're just being a surplus of one point two billion.
But jobs coming back are implements gone from twelve to two point seven we generate 87002.
And the private sector jobs.
Either second or third Texas is always number one the voice on Perry -- what's great about parent present he's gonna Florida and -- He needs to win Florida like dogs until.
It has -- -- I'm glad you're right.
And jobs and good jobs over -- have to put about a -- -- that I'm I'm OK with that -- Okay well so what's your number one piece of -- flat last thing -- -- -- these -- for the candidates when they're on stage tonight.
Fight with each other -- and everything.
What should what what's your number one piece of advice for that.
