"This week's special session of the Legislature is expected to generate more anger about the governor and his political ambitions than about the Gulf spill." Amid mounting bitterness between the independent governor and Republican legislators, a special session prompted by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill will open Tuesday. But rather than focus on a referendum to ban offshore drilling in the Florida Constitution, as the governor wants, the gathering is likely to be a gripe session with most of the rhetoric aimed not at BP or the oil industry, but at Crist himself.

TALLAHASSEE — Republican Rick Scott is on an unprecedented spending spree. He's poured more than $21 million — and counting — into his race for governor.

That's the system that Republicans — including many of the people supporting McCollum — have for years derided as "welfare for politicians." GOP legislators even put an amendment repealing the system on the November ballot this year. Today, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Judge Rules Against Gubernatorial Candidate Rick Scott
TALLAHASSEE, Fla.�-- An attorney for Republican Rick Scott told a federal judge today his campaign for governor would be "irreparably harmed" if Attorney General Bill McCollum is allowed to get extra public funding when Scott soon exceeds the spending limit in their race. But a lawyer for Secretary of State Dawn Roberts said the "excess subsidy" rule in the state's public-finance law is constitutional.

TV ads boldly advertise with interest rates of “Typical 2689% APR” (Wonga) – clearly targeted at the ...
