Gov. Rick Scott pays a visit to Democratic Broward to talk taxes

When former Gov. turned Democrat Charlie Crist was in Broward last week, the political hype was all about his comments on Steve Geller's wife's brisket. There wasn't much meat for a fact-checker to dig into there. (Hey it's Broward...gotta have a little Jewish fact-checking humor.)

But today Gov. Rick Scott pays a visit to Broward to talk about his goal of reducing taxes. He'll be at Broward College at 4 p.m. 

Scott will likely be a regular in Broward as he campaigns over the next year. The Democratic-rich county has about 250,000 registered Republicans and even more independents -- and the county has a lousy turnout record in non-presidential years which could help Scott. We hear that Scott is headed to a fundraiser at "Alligator Ron" Bergeron's Broward pad later this month. (Anybody have the invite please forward.)

While we wait for Scott to speak, here's a look at @PolitiFact Florida's recent claims by Scott about taxes.
