Rick Scott won't take a salary if elected

Talking to a Jacksonville radio WOKV this morning, GOP gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott pledged to not take a salary if elected governor. Buzz first asked about this a month ago and Scott said it wasn't an issue and declined to answer. But pressed again Friday on the air, he told listeners the job is not about the salary to him. Asked point blank if he will take a salary, he said: "No I will not." Financial disclosure forms show Scott is worth an estimated $219 million -- or more.
