Gov. Rick Scott headed to Washington for the annual meeting of the Republican Governors Association. The RGA, chaired by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, is a group that does extensive campaign fund-raising activity and will help Scott fend off a Democratic challenge next fall. A spokesman for Scott's campaign said he spoke on a panel on the subject of higher education.
Scott also plans to be in Washington for meetings of the National Governors Association, a non-partisan policy organization. Two years ago, Scott dropped Florida's membership in the NGA.
