TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Bill McCollum and Rick Scott are taking to the skies to get in as much last-minute campaigning as possible.
Embroiled in a tight race for the Republican gubernatorial nomination, the candidates plan fly-arounds Monday on the last day before the primary election.
McCollum, the state attorney general, is visiting campaign volunteers in Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, West Palm Beach and Winter Park. Scott, a wealthy former hospital executive, will stop in Miami, Tampa, Orlando and Jacksonville.
The election culminates a bitter four-month campaign marked by nasty attacks and record spending for a state primary race.
The winner faces presumptive Democratic nominee Alex Sink and independent Lawton "Bud" Chiles III in the general election.
