“I have 334 days left in this job,” Scott says. “I am going to continue to focus on making sure this is when I finish. My goal is this is the number one state to get a job number one state to get a great education and place where you can be safe. We’re at a 46 year low in our crime rate. You know politicians typically are thinking about their next job. I gotta continue finishing this job.”
