Sarasota, FL (AP) - Horror novel writer Stephen King is no fan of Florida Governor Rick Scott.

Speaking at a rally Tuesday in Sarasota against state budget cuts, King bashed Scott's leadership. King criticized Scott's rejection of federal dollars for a high-speed rail between Tampa and Orlando.

"Maybe my next horror novel will star Rick Scott," King told the 200 people at the rally.

King also said that while he is wealthy and paying 28 percent tax, he said that someone in his tax bracket should be paying 50 percent.

King is a part-time resident of Casey Key, which is in Sarasota County.
