Rick Scott Joins Instagram! Finally, More Pictures of Rick Scott!

Categories: Politicks

Because obviously the key to getting Rick Scott reelected is to show people lots and lots of pictures of Rick Scott, the Governor's campaign has officially started its own Instagram account. Using the handle @ScottForFlorida (because @RickScott was taken by this very nice seeming husband and firefighter), the account promises to give followers a behind-the-scenes look at Scott's campaign and lots and lots of pictures of Scott himself.

The account only three hours old but already includes three photos and a video. Off to a strong start. In case you're wondering, the Governor's preferred filter appears to be X-Pro II so far.

While most of us rely on selfies, Scott apparently has someone else following him around taking pictures.

The Orlando Sentinel points out that the account may be just another way for Scott to bypass the traditional media and take his case directly to voters.

Instagram is an odd choice, considering that the vast majority of its users are under 30, and that the site attracts a user base that is more female and African-American than the general population. You know, the exact kind of people that don't tend to vote for Republicans. Is there really an overlap between people who are genuinely excited about both Tea Party-hardliner Rick Scott and their friends' super-cute selfies? Granted it's only his first day, but so far there only seems to be 66 people following him.

I like Florida Governor Rick Scott who I think is The best Florida State Governor we have ever had. Excellence in making improvements in our home State of Florida and he is trying to repair our Florida Debts and help us improve and get out of our bad times. He has been busy at working hard for Florida people and tax payers and non tax payers. Good faithful fine Man as our Florida Governor. I am glad I voted for him and hope he gets re-elected again for a second time as Florida State Governor. Good with money and saving. Good business skills and kind hearted and honest too. Fair man he is and he cares about our Florida Seniors and our Florida Developed disabled and our Intellectually disabled and all disabled people young and old and cares about those who pull their weight and pay taxes and also cares for those who are too poor or disabled to be able to earn enough money to pay into the Florida tax Systems of America too. He can even help our Military and our Veterans. he cares for every Floridian and people of Florida of every kind and cares about education and safety.
