Rick Scott's opinion on Jeff Atwater's possible Senate bid is...



What does Gov. Rick Scott think about CFO Jeff Atwater's possible Senate run?

An Orlando radio host posed the question Wednesday, but Scott didn't bite.

“He left a message night before last that he was thinking about running for Senate," Scott said. "There’s a lot of people who’ve gotten in and out of that race."

Scott immediately switched to a rant about what's wrong with Washington, i.e. taxes. Maybe he'll have more to say when he returns Atwater's call.

Here's the full interview with Jim Turner. It was one of seven interviews Scott gave Wednesday, including a meeting with the Orlando Sentinel editorial board, to talk about the $70 billion budget he signed Tuesday.

Scott is scheduled to attend two ceremonial budget signings at schools in Tampa and Orlando later Wednesday.
