Another first for Rick Scott: leading the state GOP
To win a primary election one year ago, Gov. Rick Scott filled the mailboxes of Republican voters with embarrassing details about alleged money laundering and theft at the state party.
Today, Scott is head of that party.
The role requires the political rookie to raise money, inspire activists and, on Saturday, deliver the keynote address at Presidency 5, a three-day political spectacle in Orlando that will demand attention from Republicans across the country.
For Scott, the event is an opportunity to define his role as Florida's top Republican.
