Name Bill McCollum's (or Rick Scott's) running mate



From today's print Buzz column:

If most of the polls prove right, on Tuesday night we could be talking about Bill McCollum being the biggest comeback kid (and Rick Scott being the costliest loser) that Florida has seen in ages, if not ever.

In a sign of the confidence returning to supporters of McCollum's Republican gubernatorial campaign, speculative Buzz about McCollum's running mate ramped up in recent days.

Among the most frequently mentioned names: Hialeah Mayor Julio Robaina, state Sen. Alex Villalobos of Miami, state Rep. Anitere Flores of Miami, House Majority Leader Adam Hasner of Boca Raton and state Rep. Jennifer Carroll of the Jacksonville area.
