Republican Governor Rick Scott’s pro-growth policies have Florida firing on all cylinders.

Just last week, a new jobs report showed Florida created another 19,000 new private sector jobs in May, dropping the state unemployment rate to 3.8 percent. Remarkably, Florida has created over 1.5 million jobs on Governor Scott’s watch with 180,000 new jobs this year alone.

Now, Governor Scott has announced that the credit rating agency, Moody’s Investors Service, is upgrading Florida’s General Obligation (GO) bond rating to AAA, the highest possible rating. With this change, all three of the major credit rating agencies have the state’s GO bonds at AAA status for the first time in Florida history.

Governor Scott’s success on the economy and budget shows why the Florida can’t afford to let Democrats turn back the clock by enacting higher taxes and other anti-jobs policies.
