This is another notable dissing of Hispanic voters by the Scott campaign. Months ago, high-profile Scott fundraiser Mike Fernandez, a Cuba-born Coral Gables health care executive, left the re-election effort amid accusations that campaign staffers had made disparaging comments about Hispanics using a bad Mexican accent.
Scott’s approach to Hispanics, heretofore, has reinforced the reality that he’s more than an awkward, charisma-challenged politician. He has given the impression that he still doesn’t get the fact that it’s about more than Little Havana Republicans. That it’s about more than Cubans who enjoy special immigrant status.
