CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. - We're just more than two weeks away from the start of early voting and with most polls showing a dead race between Rick Scott and Alex Sink.

The Republican hopeful is rallying supporters in Port Charlotte.

Scott was welcomed by an enthusiastic crowd of well over 200 people who packed into the Cultural Center of Charlotte County earlier Thursday afternoon.

The stop was Scott's second. He flew in from Palm Beach where he had an earlier rally there.

Scott spent much of his speech talking about the need for another property insurer of last resort - describing Citizens as being in a precarious state.

He also expressed the need for school choice and teacher merit pay.

He also touted his 7-step plan to bring jobs not just locally, but to the state.

Scott's campaign will release his tax returns for the last five years tomorrow. The candidate said he doesn't expect there to be any surprises or why it took the campaign so long to release them.

Voters head to the polls November 2nd.
