COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - Republican Gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott made a campaign stop at his hometown of Naples on Tuesday.

Scott spoke to workers at medical device company, Arthrex, in North Naples.  He told employees he wants to create 700 thousand jobs in seven years.

Scott is the former Ceo of Columbia/HCA Healthcare Corporation.  He's running against Democrat and current Florida Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink.

Recent polls show the two are in a very tight race. 

Scott will face off against Sink in a debate Wednesday night.  It airs on Wink News starting at 7pm.
