Florida GOP Raising Money at Disney World

Florida GOP Raising Money at Disney World

Gov. Rick Scott and other Florida Republicans are gathering in central Florida to raise money and prepare for the looming candidacy of Republican turned Democrat Charlie Crist.

The Republican Party of Florida is holding its Statesman's Dinner Friday evening at the Contemporary Resort at Walt Disney World.

The big fundraising event comes amid the ongoing federal government shutdown in Washington D.C.

But it also comes nearly a year before Scott's attempt to win a second term. Scott barely won election three years ago and he has been battling stagnant poll numbers during most of his time in office.

One advantage for Republicans could be money. A political committee controlled by Scott has raised millions even though the election is still 13 months away.
