Scott Has New Explanation For Debate Fumble
[su_right_ad]Florida Governor Rick Scott has yet another explanation as to why he wouldn’t come out to debate Charlie Crist. Suddenly, it has nothing to do with a fan.
Scott appeared on CNN earlier tonight to address “fangate” and why he didn’t appear on stage to debate Charlie Crist for several minutes. Wolf Blitzer asked Scott why exactly this was an issue of contention in the first place.
Blitzer asked, “What was the big deal?… Why was this even an issue going into the debate?” Scott didn’t directly answer, telling Blitzer that the reason he didn’t come out is because he was told Crist wouldn’t be coming out and debate organizers did not tell him to come on stage. (It’s worth noting here that the debate had started and Crist gave answers for several minutes before Scott appeared on-stage.)
Blitzer brought up the debate agreement, which had a note from Crist that he may need a fan. Scott said he hadn’t seen that agreement, and as opposed to last night, when it sounded like he adamantly refused to come on stage if Crist had the fan, he said today, “I don’t care if he brings a microwave, if he brings a humidifier.”
