Rick Scott schedules Tampa campaign stop

Republican candidate for governor Rick Scott will be the featured speaker at a meeting of the Tampa Bay Young Republicans on Tuesday at the Tampa Club in the Bank of America building downtown. Happy hour starts at 4 p.m., and the meeting begins at 7 p.m.

Hillsborough County Commission Rose Ferlita, a potential mayoral candidate, was scheduled to be the guest speaker at the group's May meeting, but according to the TBYR Facebook page, "When approached about the possibility of Rick Scott also speaking, she graciously offered to reschedule her engagement for a future month. TBYR thanks her for doing this, even though it wasn't necessary, but we look forward to having her speak fully at a meeting in the near future."
