Monday’s showdown between Florida State University and Auburn University will also include a showdown between political rivals Governor Rick Scott and his chief re-election rival, Charlie Crist. The two are cashing in on the BCS National Championship Game in Pasadena.
It was all about the ‘green’ Tuesday for Governor Rick Scott. Not only did he and First Lady Ann Scott participate in the ceremonial lighting of the official 2013 Cabinet Christmas tree, Scott also opened his campaign account to run for re-election in 2014.
Charlie Crist made it into the millionaire’s club three weeks after jumping into the race for governor as a Democrat.
Hoping to throw a little political muscle behind the incumbent, former Governor Jeb Bush announced Tuesday that he was endorsing Rick Scott in the 2014 Florida gubernatorial race.
Florida’s 2014 gubernatorial election is still more than a year away. The Democratic candidate is still a matter of speculation.
But two groups are already making plans to bring together the Republican and Democratic nominees in a statewide televised debate in mid-October 2014, a time when voters will be making up their minds and preparing to cast ballots.
Florida’s Democratic Party is considering who will be their best candidate to challenge Republican Gov. Rick Scott next year.
