Florida Taxwatch President and CEO Dominic Calabro says the governor faced an adjustment into politics but feels he is overcoming that learning curve.

Calabro adds although the agenda is achievable, it will have some hurdles to clear. He feels the governor currently faces low poll numbers and redistricting.
