Jennifer Carroll: 'I believe I did a fantastic job'



The New York Times scored a 25-minute interview with former Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll. Here's an excerpt from their story:

"I offered everything that I could to the administration,” Ms. Carroll said on Saturday, in her first interview since resigning. “I believe I did a fantastic job.”

Despite a tumultuous week, Ms. Carroll said in a 25-minute interview that she was ready to move on and that she viewed her resignation as a setback rather than a catastrophe. She said she was already fielding offers and was weighing a jump into corporate life, community service and, perhaps later, a return to politics.

“People are calling me asking me to run for this, that and the other thing,” said Ms. Carroll, 53, who is married with three grown children. “I say, you know what? First of all, I am going to spend time with my family, because for the last two years it’s been very difficult.”

And here's Miami Herald political writer Marc Caputo's column on Gov. Rick Scott's chance for a do-over pick.
