Scott files paperwork to seek re-election in 2014

Gov. Rick Scott submitted the necessary paperwork to the state Division of Elections Tuesday to seek a second term in 2014, making him officially a candidate for re-election. Republican "Richard L. Scott" appointed Abby Dupree as his campaign treasurer and Frederick (Rick) Carroll III, a well-known Tallahassee CPA, as his deputy campaign treasurer.

Scott's paperwork is in addition to his Let's Get to Work re-election committee. The filing is a formality and he's not expected to have serious opposition in the Republican primary. The first reporting deadline for contributions to Scott's re-election fund will be on Jan. 10, 2014.
