Was Rick Scott a Mitt Romney man in 2008?



Gov. Rick Scott rarely misses an opportunity to plug Texas Gov. Rick Perry although he says he hasn't decided whether he'll endorse in the presidential primary. But which candidate did he support in Florida's high-profile 2008 GOP race?

"I don't remember," Scott told the Times/Herald.

Scott said he probably voted for whomever he gave a campaign donation. He gave $2,300 to Mitt Romney six weeks before Florida's Jan. 29 election, which was won by John McCain. Scott then gave $2,300 to McCain on March 11, one week after the Arizona Republican clinched the party's nomination.
