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.

What does the middle initial stand for? LIAR?

The people welcome this indication that he is going to serve us for another 4 years. While this democrat primary voter was initially skeptical of the political novice Scott, he has won me over with how much he has improved our state's finances from the disaster he inherited from the scumbag Crist and now we are at a point where we are in such good shape Scott can return $500 million in overpayments to us taxpayers. From emails and contacts of other readers of this hometown paper it appears that my sentiments are shared by the majority of Floridians and Herald readers.
