Ladies and gentlemen, the 2010 Florida governor election has finally come to an end. This election has shown us many different things about the candidates and who potentially could become the leader of the state of Florida. Let’s take a look and briefly examine this major election that the people of Florida cast their vote to support or oppose and which candidate came out with the win.
The race that was on the minds of most of my peers (my mind included) was the race for governor between Republican Rick Scott and Democrat Alex Sink. This race featured two completely new candidates because the current incumbent governor, Charlie Crist, was campaigning for a Florida Senate seat.
Neither candidate is a career politician (Scott was the CEO of Colombia/HCA for a time and Sink was the president of Bank of America before being elected Florida’s Chief Financial Officer In 2006) also both of the campaigns stated that they were not politicians. It seemed to me one of the primary of the primary strategies of both candidates was to accuse the other of being tied in with the old way that Tallahassee works.
The end results had Scott winning the office by a very narrow margin of victory with Sink having conceded the race to Scott. This race in my opinion has become by far the closest race I have seen for any political office for the longest time it looked as though it could have gone either way. With Crist leaving soon and Scott taking office in a short time from now we will have to wait and see what kind of changes will happen in the state of Florida and whether Florida is really open for business as Scott says. We will find out if Florida will really get to work or if it will just be business as usual in Tallahassee
