The Florida Department of Revenue has ousted top employees and kept positions vacant for months to make room for many of Gov. Rick Scott’s loyal staffers who will be out of their jobs when he leaves office this year.
Scott has many ties to Texas. Scott founded his hospital chain there in 1987. Columbia/HCA became the world’s largest health care company and later paid $1.7 billion in fines and penalties for Medicare fraud.
The Florida Department of Corrections is eliminating programs that prepare inmates for their return to the community.
“We found that Scott’s claim mischaracterizes the vote Nelson took and leaves out that Nelson has actually advocated for the release of hostages in Iran.”
So far, Scott has spent $5 million on TV. The Republican Governor’s Association has dropped another $6 million to reserve time for Scott through the election.
Florida’s U.S. Senate race is expected to be one of — if not the most — expensive Senate races in history.

Scott currently holds an A-plus rating from the NRA, but he fears that may change soon too.
Concerned evacuees on the verge of homelessness were asked to leave a Rick Scott event where he was supposed to be talking about the concerns of the Puerto Rican community.
