Romney to Republican Governor: stop telling the truth about the recovery.


Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign asked Florida Governor Rick Scott to tone down his statements heralding improvements in the state’s economy because they clash with the presumptive Republican nominee’s message that the nation is suffering under President Barack Obama, according to two people familiar with the matter. 
Scott, a Republican, was asked to say that the state’s jobless rate could improve faster under a Romney presidency, according to the people, who asked not to be named.

As Krugman has pointed out, Florida's recovering because it's been the beneficiary of a massive federal bailout.
