LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Florida Democrats are holding a weekend-long conference that they see as a rally to defeat Republican Gov. Rick Scott in the 2014 election.
While former state Sen. Nan Rich will be the only gubernatorial candidate speaking at the conference, Republican turned Democrat Charlie Crist will be making his presence known.
Crist is expected to announce his candidacy soon, and has already created a website asking Floridians to share their concerns with him. Along with it is a video that attacks the current administration and counters Rick Scott's "It's working" catchphrase by saying "It's not working."
Republicans are scheduling several events in the area to try to take some attention away from the Democrats, including a speech Scott plans to make to a Republican women's group on Sunday.
