Gov. Rick Scott

Scott For Florida

Update: Due to many calls and comments, this entire edition of the Florida Roundup discussed renewed police scrutiny. 

POLICE PROTESTS

South Florida demonstrators marched against police-related violence last weekend. More protests are planned after a street artist died running from police and getting hit by an unmarked Miami squad car. 

NEW CHIEFS

Scott For Florida

Gov. Rick Scott’s inauguration is less than a month away. Scott is only the second Republican governor in Florida history to win reelection. Jeb Bush was the first.

Scott told reporters at the Capitol this week he'll focus on education and tax cuts, as well as growing jobs during his second term.

Gov. Rick Scott could face sanctions over his use of a private email account now that a judge in Tallahassee has given the okay for an additional complaint against Scott relating to public records. 

4 More Years: Which Scott will Florida See?

Nov 6, 2014

Florida's election left two questions: Which Rick Scott will govern over the next four years and who can Democrats turn to in a statewide election after failing with a former Republican?

One of the scientists who spoke with Governor Rick Scott about climate change watched election results from the party for losing candidate Charlie Crist.

Eckerd College marine science professor David Hastings said when he and four other scientists met with Scott in August, the governor didn’t react much to his concerns about rising sea levels. But Scott told him he was open to fixing some of the problems.

Gov. Rick Scott won Tuesday's elections with a slim margin over former Gov. Charlie Crist, who was briefly rumored to call for a recount.

Considering Florida's elections history, the governor's race was over relatively early, results well settled by midnight. But not before some initial suspense.

The race between Florida Gov. Rick Scott and his Democratic challenger, Charlie Crist, remains essentially tied as the campaign enters its final day.

A Quinnipiac University poll released Monday showed Crist had 42 percent of the vote to Scott's 41 percent. Libertarian Adrian Wyllie had 7 percent with 9 percent undecided.

A Quinnipiac poll last week showed Crist with a 43-40 lead.

The finger-pointing and mudslinging almost is over. There is an end to the negative ads. Floridians will choose their next governor and it's safe to say that man already has served as governor. And he has served as a Republican.

It’s down to the final days of the 2014 campaign.

Governor Rick Scott and former Governor Charlie Crist make last minute pitches as more than one million Floridians already have voted.

But this is Florida. And this is an extremely tight race for governor. What will happen if there’s a recount?
