Rick Scott Stopped in Area
He wants to serve in Florida's highest political office and has shelled out millions of his own money for the chance. Republican Rick Scott's journey to become Florida's next governor brought him to North Central Florida Thursday evening. Hundreds of people turned out for the Alachua county republican party's annual Ronald Reagan black tie and blue jeans BBQ including Rick Scott. The candidate said he is ready to lead.
"The existing politicians haven't done a very good job. We have the highest unemployment rate on record, almost 50 percent of homeowners are underwater, and we are walking into a budget deficit so we need an outsider," said Rick Scoot.
