Rick Scott won't say if top aide is possible Lt. Gov. pick

With the re-election campaign gearing up, speculation continues to rise about who Gov. Rick Scott will pick as his running mate.

One rumor recently floated by the Saintpetersblog and others: his chief of staff Adam Hollingsworth.

Scott isn't saying much. 

"There's a lot of great Floridians and so we're continuing the process," Scott said during a brief press availability after a speech at the Florida Manufacturers Association annual meeting on Thursday morning in St. Petersburg.

"Is Adam under consideration?" the Times/Herald asked.

"There's a lot of great Floridians," the governor repeated.

As far as we know, Hollingsworth has been heavily involved in helping the governor vet running mate candidates.

The Times/Herald reported last month that there were four people on the lieutenant governor short list. Since then, two of the four candidates have said they are not interested.

Wow, typical dodgeball answer from Scott. His group has better not make too much of Crist's campaign manager leaving -- they have a lot more serious problems just getting anyone who wants to be his lieutenant governor.


Many people have already turned this position down; why not give it to an admitted liar? Better yet, open the Naples phone book randomly close your eyes and point to the next person to offer this position. You could not possibly do any worse. Oh Oh I know pick Trey Radel; I understand he'll soon need a job!!!
