Bill McCollum, you have a serious Rick Scott problem
Anyone noticing how often Rick Scott for governor ads are popping up on TV? The latest one can be seen here. According to one tracking report Scott has spent more than $4.73-million on TV and radio through May 14 in every market. That's more money spent in one month than frontrunner Bill McCollum has raised in 12 months.
Even a little-known, rookie candidate who has to explain how he led a company fined $1.7-billion for Medicare and Medicaid fraud has to be taken very seriously when he's on track to spend more than $25-million in the primary.
It's interesting to contrast the McCollum campaign response to Scott - publicly ignore him - with the Kendrick Meek Senate campaign, which immediately started publicly hitting billionaire primary rival Jeff Greene over his controversial business background.
