Tampa, Florida (AP) --
Republican gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott may be running as an outsider, but he is now getting chummy with the GOP's insiders.
When Scott entered the governor's race in April, he railed
against Florida's Republican Party establishment.
Now, with less than a month to go before the general election,
Scott is working with many of the same Republican insiders he
criticized. Some of them helped raise millions of dollars to defeat
him in the primary.
Scott, for his part, doesn't see the contradiction. He sees
those in the Republican establishment scrambling to align
themselves with their independent-thinking nominee, rather than him
seeking their support.
