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.
