The Florida governor’s race resembled a fable-like fairy-tale mash-up last week. The roles:
Charlie Crist, as Brer Rabbit.
Gov. Rick Scott, as the emperor and his new clothes.
Steve Halverson, the chair of the Florida Council of 100, as the archetypal fall-guy of a fool.
The three became part of the same campaign tale amid the business group’s annual spring meeting. Scott was scheduled to speak Thursday, followed by Crist a few hours later at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando.
