Rick Scott Won't Be Paying for All of His Re-Election Campaign This Time
Scott massively outspent his opponents in the 2010 campaign. According to one source, he spent about $78 million of his own money in that election. In comparison, his Democratic rival, Alex Sink, only spent $28 million total.
But all the money in the world won't guarantee Scott re-election. He's been plagued by lagging approval numbers practically since he took office in early 2011. Numerous polls have showed that, in retrospect, Floridians would have rather have elected Sink, and early polling show he's incredibly vulnerable in his re-election campaign.
So it's actually surprising that he's already amassed $500,000 in donations, as reported by the AP.
