TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) --
Gov.-elect Rick Scott says Jesus Christ has been there for him throughout his life.
Prayers from multiple faiths were offered during a breakfast
shortly before Scott's formal swearing-in Tuesday, Jan. 4. A crowd of
roughly 1,500 attended the ceremony at Florida A&M University.
The incoming governor made a point of praising the Constitution
which allows religious freedom and gives Americans a choice in what
Scott said there is no better way than to begin his governorship
with the prayers of the people he'll serve.
A conservative Republican from Naples who came from nowhere to
win the governor's race, Scott said he appreciated the prayers that
sustained him during and up-and-down campaign.
