    I've been thinking ahead to the 2014 gubenatoral election. One thing is certain- Rick Scott must go. This man's policies have been a disaster and I don't think I need to list the many examples of that. I don't understand how he got elected in the first place. He's a no-good Northern Yankee carpetbagger Republican who moved to Florida to run for governor. Real Floridians, like me, understand that's not the type of person we need in office.

    This leads to the question: Who is best suited to challenge him? I keep trying to think of a good choice, but everyone I think of falls short.

    I am a real Floridian and I do not understand it that way. Please make your list.

    Question is: has anyone thrown their hat into the ring? I haven't kept up with Florida politics since I moved to Virginia, but I would imagine that Pam Iorio would likely run. That being said (or written), who will challenge him from the GOP? Do you think Crist will try again?

    Sounds like it's going to get interesting.

    Regards, hope all is well,

    I guess Nan Rich is in the race.

    I believe Crist will run as a Democrat. Last time the dems put up a very bad candidate in my book, so Scott walked in.

    Crist could never run a a pub again. He is a joke.

    I have to agree with you. I caught all get out because I wouldn't back Crist when he ran for governor, but the Republican party wanted all to vote for him here in Fl. I just didn't cast a vote for governor, now the same people who were giving me all get out are now saying that I was right.
