UPDATE Raw video: Jeb Bush gets laughs as stand in for Rick Scott

Here's what you didn't get to see on Univisión or online after the first debate between Republican Rick Scott and Democrat Alex Sink Friday night:

After the debate, Sink took questions from the press and continued to slam Scott as she did during the hour-long televised exchange. Also on hand for her camp were two of her GOP supporters, state Sen. Alex Villalobos and Miami-Dade School Board member-elect Raquel Regalado, and HCA whistleblower John Schilling.

Reporters awaited Scott after Sink left the stage in the press room. Scott didn't show, sending several surrogates instead: former Gov. Jeb Bush, Miami Congressmen Lincoln and Mario Diaz-Balart, former GOP state chairman Al Cardenas and state Rep. Jennifer Carroll, Scott's running mate.

The most memorable moment in the question-and-answer session: when someone asked Bush why he was taking questions instead of Scott. "I don't know," Bush said.
