Rick Scott highlights support of AZ immigration law

Trying to position himself to the right of Bill McCollum in the GOP gubernatorial primary, Rick Scott is buying radio spots highlighting his support of the Arizona immigration law. In the ad, Scott says, "... For years Washington has limited local police ability to enforce immigration laws. Now Arizona is changing that, and Florida should too. If someone gets stopped for speeding or arrested for robbery, the police should be allowed to determine if they are here legally."

Several days ago, McCollum said Arizona has unique problems, adding "I don't think Florida should enact laws like this -- quite that far out."
