VALRICO — Gov. Rick Scott's campaign event Saturday was part political rally, part fiesta.
Scott, the termed-out Republican who's running for senate this year, appeared before a small but spirited crowd of mostly Latino and Latina supporters at El Rico Frappe Latino restaurant in Valrico. He was joined by Puerto Rican Congresswoman Jenniffer González-Colón, a smattering of local Republican candidates — and a salsa band.
Scott and González-Colón, who endorsed the governor in May, made no major announcements at the event, the goal of which seemed to be to shore up support of the all-important Florida Puerto Rican community ahead of the crucial 2018 elections. Scott entered to the salsa music, and even briefly showed off his dance moves.
