Rick Scott and Cuban weddings

Republican gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott was on WPLG-ABC 10's This Week in South Florida Sunday, and host Michael Putney asked him about his comment in a Univisión debate last week that he had embraced the Hispanic community by learning how to drink cortaditos and eat dinner late.

"Do you really know the Cuban community?" Putney asked.

"I think so," Scott said, adding that he did business here in the 1980s. "I've been to plenty of Cuban weddings. They all start late. The first one I went to I think I was 45 minutes early."
