FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Governor-elect Rick Scott won his campaign marketing himself as an outsider. But he's named to his transition team some decidedly inside names.
Scott announced a transition advisory committee Thursday that includes former Lt. Gov. Toni Jennings; former Gov. Jeb Bush's chief of staff, Sally Bradshaw; and outgoing U.S. Sen. George LeMieux, among other figures well-known in Tallahassee.
He's also including at least one Democrat in his transition: former Miami Mayor Maurice Ferre, who unsuccessfully ran for Senate and crossed the aisle to support Scott for governor.
Scott gave his first news conference as governor-elect Thursday, a day after sealing his razor-thin win over Democrat Alex Sink.
