Scott Staff Shake Up

From the beginning, Rick Scott campaigned as an outsider...

A man determined to change Tallahassee's way of doing business.
He put the state planes on the auction block.

Ordered his staff to install velvet ropes at capitol press conferences.

We're going to change the rules a little bit, how we do things.

Most importantly Scott, hired a team of outsiders as his top advisers.

But, now, with polls indicating only a third of Florida voters approve of the new governor, two of those advisers including chief of staff Mike Prendergast are out.

As low as Scott's poll numbers have sunken, they have yet to hit the all-time record.

That illustrious title is held by a governor who served twenty years ago...Bob Martinez, a man who had a shakeup of his own.

The kind of experience hotshot lobbyist Steve Macnamara has now.
He's widely expected to become Scott's new right-hand man.

An about-face for a governor who ran against the establishment but now may have no choice but to run to it.
