JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Behind in the polls in the Republican governor's contest, Bill McCollum is hoping to make up some ground with a four-day bus tour of parts of north Florida and the Interstate 4 corridor.
McCollum, Florida's attorney general, is scheduled to start the "Real Solutions, New Jobs" tour by addressing a Republican women's club in Jacksonville Thursday morning. The trip will take him down the east coast and culminate in the Tampa Bay area on Sunday.
McCollum is trailing in the polls to Rick Scott, a wealthy businessman who has spent more than $25 million of his own money on the race. The primary election is Aug. 24, but early voting started in Florida this week.
