Today, Congressman Ted Deutch (D-FL) sent a letter to Florida Governor Rick Scott that commends him for admitting in an interview this Wednesday with CNN's Soledad O'Brien that additional early voting days are needed for elections in Florida.

"I was pleasantly surprised and heartened to hear you acknowledge the need for additional early voting hours in Florida while being interviewed this past Wednesday," said Congressman Deutch. "I stand ready to support your efforts in the coming session of the Legislature to relieve the burdensome restrictions placed on early voting during your tenure as Governor and hope that your newfound regret over this decision extends to other ill-conceived provisions of HB 1355."
