Can Outsider Rick Scott Really Fix Florida?

Tuesday, January 04, 2011

The stage is set for the swearing-in ceremony of Florida governor, Rick Scott. The republican rode a wave of anti-incumbent fever to become the new governor of Florida. Voters wanted an outsider and that's exactly what they got. However, along with his outsider status, Scott has the baggage of being the former head of Columbia/HCA, which was at the center of a Medicaid fraud scandal.

Sergio Bustos, state politics editor at the Miami Herald says that Scott has a lot of work to do to turn the state around.
