TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Governor-elect Rick Scott is sticking to his campaign theme of creating jobs while making his first postelection visit to the Florida Capitol.
Scott, a Republican corporate executive who lacks governmental experience, met with outgoing Gov. Charlie Crist and incoming House Speaker Dean Cannon, R-Winter Park.
He spoke only briefly with reporters and was reluctant to talk about anything other than his promise to get Florida "back to work."
Scott offered no comment on Crist's plans to keep making judicial and other appointments rather than leave them to him. Nor did he object to the Legislature's plans to override Crist's vetoes of two bills that would cut into the powers of the governor and other executive branch officials.
