SWEETWATER, Fla. (AP) - Republican leaders are mending more fences with gubernatorial nominee Rick Scott.
Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, head of the Republican Governors Association, will appear Tuesday with Scott in Sweetwater.
Before last week's primary, the group asked Scott to pull an ad tying rival Bill McCollum to indicted former state party chairman Jim Greer.
Scott refused, saying Barbour's statement was an example of "Washington insiders" rallying for McCollum.
After Scott won the primary, the group urged all Florida Republicans to back Scott.
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will appear with Scott later Tuesday in Jacksonville. Bush supported McCollum in the primary.
Scott is running against Democrat Alex Sink and independent Lawton "Bud" Chiles III.
