After Election Day Chaos, Florida Governor Rick Scott Defends Decision To Limit Voting

But the governor is sticking to his decision, repeatedly telling reporters that he did the right thing by cutting early voting. When confronted by a local station WKMG, Scott insisted that the right thing happened before simply walking away from the question:

REPORTER: Should you have extended early voting hours?
SCOTT: Im very confident that the right thing happened. 4.4. million people voted.

Scott repeated the same statement almost verbatim to another station, WFTV:

SCOTT: The right thing happened. 4.4 million people came out and voted either absentee or early. On Election Day we had 20 times as many polling locations as we did early. So we did the right thing.

From Think Progress: "Floridians were reportedly still voting in Miami-Dade County at 1:52 am when President Obama gave his acceptance speech. A poll found that minorities and Democrats were far more likely to face longer voting lines than Republicans and white voters."
