    The same ad has surfaced in past judicial races.

    Broward County is vital to Gov. Rick Scott, but not because he expects to win.

     

     

     

    Actually, he expects to be overwhelmingly beaten. But Scott will only get another four years in the governor’s mansion if he cuts into the Democratic nominee’s vote in Broward.
