TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) --

One week after his election, Governor-elect Rick Scott is coming to the Capitol.

Gov. Charlie Crist said he'll meet with his successor Tuesday, November 9 to discuss the transition to a new Republican administration.

Crist, who was defeated last week in his independent bid for a
U.S. Senate seat, said he remains unsure about his future plans
after leaving office in early January. He said he is looking
forward to a private life.

Crist said Scott -- like former Gov. Jeb Bush -- comes into the
governor's office without any previous experience in an elected
role, but added that Bush fared successfully and he expects Scott
to do the same.

Crist didn't hint if he would return to politics, but noted that
he's just 54 years old and optimistic.
