With just about two months to go until the general election, the bitter and expensive race to be Florida’s next governor is kicking into gear.
Now that the dust from the August Primary has settled, key members of the state’s Democratic party are beginning to rally the proverbial troops in a run up to the November election.
Governor Rick Scott has retaken a marginal lead over Democrat Charlie Crist in a new poll.
Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s campaign announced Tuesday he will participate in three debates this fall with either Nan Rich or Charlie Crist, whoever emerges as the winner of the Democratic primary and CBS4 News will proudly serve as producers of one of those debates.
Nan Rich is frustrated. That much is clear. But the lifelong Democrat and former Senate minority leader isn’t backing down. Rich told a gathering of news executives and editors Friday that she will continue battling for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination and trying to draw distinctions with opponent Charlie Crist — despite many of the party’s fundraisers and leaders lining up behind the former Republican Crist.

Former state Senate Minority Leader Nan Rich qualified Tuesday to run for governor, cementing a Democratic primary contest against former Gov. Charlie Crist.
Gov. Rick Scott signed 95 bills into law Friday, including measures to further restrict abortions in Florida, keep electronic cigarettes out of the hands of minors and regulate the commercial parasailing industry.
Florida’s GOP-dominated House approved a proposed constitutional amendment Wednesday that could give the winner of November’s gubernatorial election the power to reshape the state Supreme Court.
Voters will get the chance to see Rick Scott face off in a televised debate against his Democratic challenger, presumably Charlie Crist and it’ll air statewide on CBS4.
