Republican Gov. Rick Scott defeats Charlie Crist in Florida

Florida Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican, brushed aside a formidable challenge from former Gov. Charlie Crist to capture a second term in the populous and politically important state. Crist’s campaign marked a remarkable effort at resurrection; he served as governor as a Republican, ran for Senate unsuccessfully as an independent, and sought the governorship anew as a Democrat. The race seethed with the two men’s distaste for each other; at one point Scott refused to take part in a live debate for minutes because he was disturbed by a fan that Crist had brought onstage.
