Gov. Rick Scott on his popularity and privatizing parks, prisons and Citizens

Gov. Rick Scott held a wide-ranging media availability today after a Homeland Security educational briefing for state agency heads. The governor answers questions about his 27 percent approval rating, his objections to implementing health care exchanges, and plans to privatize Citizens Property Insurance, state parks and prisons. 

(Note the new duds for the state's top dude. He's donning an oxford shirt with the state seal and "Gov. Rick Scott." The governor is choosing a more casual tie-less -- populist? -- look these days.)
