MIAMI, Fla. (AP) - Candidates for Florida governor Rick Scott and Alex Sink are meeting for their first face-to-face debate.
After attacking each other in TV commercials, Republican Scott and Democrat Sink face off Friday afternoon at Univision studios in Miami. Their answers to panelists' questions will be translated into Spanish when the debate is aired at 11 p.m. on Univision affiliates in Miami, Orlando, Tampa and Fort Myers/Naples.
Scott, a 57-year-old multimillionaire businessman and political newcomer from Naples, spent about $50 million of his own money beating Attorney General Bill McCollum for the Republican nomination.
Sink is a 62-year-old former bank executive who was elected Florida's chief financial officer in 2006.
