It’s still up in the air whether Charlie Crist will challenge Rick Scott in 2014, but Crist’s employer, law firm Morgan & Morgan is already hedging its bets.

Scott’s fundraising committee, Let’s Get to Work, reported a $10,000 contribution this week from Morgan & Morgan, received during a six-figure swing through Central Florida, according to the Florida Current. Let’s Get to Work raised more than $250,000, with large donations coming from U.S. Sugar Corp. ($100,000), the health plan manager Wellcare ($25,000) and developer Jim Palmer ($25,000). Wellcare recently announced plans to compete for state Medicaid contracts, while Palmer has been a prominent supporter of the Wekiva Parkway.
