Gov. Rick Scott's net worth drops by half

Gov. Rick Scott's net worth dropped by $115 million in 2010, but his income soared nearly 40 percent in the sluggish economy.

The hospital executive-turned-investor earned $11.5 million from investment income, interest and consulting fees, according to a recently filed financial disclosure form.

That's more than the $8.3 million he reported in 2009 and the $3.7 million he earned in 2008.

And while the value of his $9 million beachfront home in Naples increased slightly, his net worth dropped 53 percent to $103 million in 2010.

"I spent too much on the darn campaign," Scott joked Tuesday in Largo.
