Remember this: Rick Scott says he won't need to self-finance for 2014 re-election

Maybe no surprise, but Gov. Rick Scott said Tuesday he won’t have to spend his own money when he runs for re-election in 2012, reports the News Service of Florida. And run he will. Scott told reporters Tuesday that he plans on returning to Tallahassee in November 2012, saying this time around he won’t have to go it alone, financially that is. “I won’t have to,” Scott said. In 2010, Scott spent $75 million, most of it his own, to defeat Democratic rival Alex Sink. As head of the party, Scott said he expects to be aided in his upcoming re-election bid, of which he had no doubts. “I’m running for re-election,” Scott added. “I like this job. This is the best job you can imagine.”
