Is Rick Scott Bill McCollum's worst nightmare?
Meet Republican gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott of Naples (today's story here) who has at least the potential to completely upend the traditional campaign model in Florida. The founder of Columbia/HCA has some baggage, nobody knows him, and it's pretty late in the game.

He's already put $1.5-million behind a TV ad (the second one here).
