Low profile? Rick Scott to headline $500k Fort Lauderdale fundraiser for Mitt Romney

Sure, Gov. Rick Scott's keeping a low profile on the campaign trail these days as Mitt Romney runs for president. But it looks like Scott is lending something that's more important than campaign appearances: fundraising help.

The governor is scheduled tonight to hold a Morton's Steak House fundraiser in Fort Lauderdal for at least 20 donors. The event starts at 6:30 p.m. Maximum donation is $50,000 a person, but organizers say they expect about half of that.
