Fla. Gov. Vows GOP Will “Win Big” This Year In Elections

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Florida Gov. Rick Scott is vowing a “big year” for Republicans during the crucial 2014 elections.

Scott, who is seeking a second term, told an annual GOP gathering that he and other Republicans will “win big” in the state this year.

Republicans have controlled the Florida Legislature and governor’s mansion for much of the last two decades. But Democrats consider Scott vulnerable, since he has had lackluster poll numbers during his three years in office.

Former Gov. Charlie Crist, who was elected a Republican but is running as a Democrat, is one of the leading candidates challenging Scott.

Scott didn’t mention Crist by name, but several other Republicans criticized him.

Several Republican leaders called on GOP organizers to be “unified” and to avoid internal fights over issues like school standards.
