The head of the Florida GOP says he is confident that Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican, will win re-election this fall in part because of the moves they have made to strengthen their ground game.
State and national Republican Party officials are getting behind Rep. Allen B. West's call for a recount of all early votes in St. Lucie County, Fla., saying it would be "unconscionable" not to answer lingering questions about the results, which show the outspoken GOP lawmaker trailing Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy.
Some state Republican Party leaders and influential conservatives say they are worried that the early stages of Mitt Romney's campaign have been marked by missteps and missed opportunities in the bid to unseat President Obama in November.
"Let's Get to Work is confident that they have done everything according to the standards of Florida election law," Curry said in a statement.
"It is not just about targeting a specific group," he said of the effort. "It is about what kind of car do you drive. What kind of house do you live in. What kind of magazines do you read."
