Washington (CNN) - Check out the two statements Tuesday night from the Republican Governors Association on the results of the Arizona and Florida GOP gubernatorial primaries. They are very telling.
In reacting to Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's overwhelming victory to capture the GOP nomination, RGA Tim Murtaugh said "Through hard work and principled leadership, Governor Brewer has earned a full term as governor of Arizona. After cleaning up a budget mess she inherited from her predecessor, she ably took up Arizona's fight against unwanted, excessive intrusion from Washington, D.C. and intervened when the federal government failed to enforce its own immigration laws. The voters will reward her with a deserved victory in November."
But in his reaction to businessman's Rick Scott's victory over Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum in the Sunshine state's Republican gubernatorial primary, Murtaugh barely mentioned Scott in his statement, only saying that "Intraparty struggles are often difficult to watch, and the contest in Florida has been a good example of that. That said, the primary is over, Rick Scott is the nominee, the general election has begun, and our party now looks forward."
