Rick Scott won't say if top aide is possible Lt. Gov. pick
With the re-election campaign gearing up, speculation continues to rise about who Gov. Rick Scott will pick as his running mate.
One rumor recently floated by the Saintpetersblog and others: his chief of staff Adam Hollingsworth.
Scott isn't saying much.
"There's a lot of great Floridians and so we're continuing the process," Scott said during a brief press availability after a speech at the Florida Manufacturers Association annual meeting on Thursday morning in St. Petersburg.
"Is Adam under consideration?" the Times/Herald asked.
"There's a lot of great Floridians," the governor repeated.
As far as we know, Hollingsworth has been heavily involved in helping the governor vet running mate candidates.
The Times/Herald reported last month that there were four people on the lieutenant governor short list. Since then, two of the four candidates have said they are not interested.
