Rick Scott raising money in Tarpon Springs

Rick Scott's re-election campaign is funded mainly by his "Let's Get to Work" committee. But looking at the invite for its Feb. 18 fundraiser in Tarpon Springs, and all the contractors hosting it who do business with the state, we wonder if a better name would be "Let's Get Some State Work."

The reception is at the home of Wendy and David Nelson and the minimum donation is $1,500 per person. The host committee includes David W Dunbar, Rep. Ed Hooper, Preferred Materials, Brandon Construction, Cone and Graham, Sen. Jack Latvala, David Nelson Construction, Florida Transportation Builders Association, Shutts and Bowen, Suncoast Paving, Speaker Will Weatherford.
