Paula Dockery not interested in being Rick Scott's running mate



State Sen. Paula Dockery, widely seen as a strong contender to be Rick Scott's lieutenant governor, said she told Scott over dinner in Tampa last night that she's not interested.

Her husband, Doc Dockery, she said, has no interest in moving to Tallahassee (governor was different), and he's her top priority. "I will have a pivotal role in his administration, but not as lieutenant governor," she said of Scott.
