Governor Rick Scott of Florida promised 700,000 new jobs on top of Florida’s regular jobs growth. Now he is saying the promise was 700,000 total.

“Our plan,” Scott said in an October 2010 debate, “is on top of what normal growth would be.”

But this week, the governor gave a different answer. “Your pledge was for 700,000 in addition to normal growth, wasn’t it?” Scott was asked during a meeting with the Sun Sentinel editorial board.

No, he replied, “700,000.”

The governor’s position hasn’t changed, said spokesman Lane Wright.
