From Adam C. Smith of the Tampa Bay Times, 12/10/2015:
Gov. Rick Scott has declined take a position, pro or con, on Donald Trump’s controversial proposal to halt temporarily Muslims coming to America. …
“Governor Scott continues his focus on getting more information from President Obama about the Syrian refugees being placed in Florida by the federal government to ensure the safety of all those in our state….”
Florida GOP Chairman Blaise Ingoglia this week also has declined multiple requests for comment on the proposal, although state GOP Chairs in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Ohio have criticized it.
Several recent polls have found that Republicans are either evenly divided on the proposal or mostly in favor of it.
