Gov. Rick Scott's mother, Esther, passes away



Gov. Rick Scott just sent this tweet: "My Mom – one of the only constants in my life – has passed away. Ann and I are comforted by all the thoughts and prayers for our family."

Scott cancelled events last month and flew to Kansas City, Mo., to visit his mother, who was hospitalized and in intensive care. Esther Scott was a visible component of his election campaign in 2010.
