Did I read right that Rick Scott wants 21 to buy a gun?

More than that.

More RO's, mandate 1 for every 1k students.
No armed faculty
Better technology and security at perimeters of schools
Some stuff around mental health and taking firearms and/or added restrictions.

It's a start...

What would you say is the most important thing the next Governor of the state should address first regardless of who it is?

I haven't been back long enough to have a solid opinion on this.

Rick Scott vs. Bill Nelson.

Doesn't exactly stir the soul, does it?

No, and Rick Scott will probably win because this state loves criminals.

I don't know anything about either of these guys as I don't live in Florida. What are their platforms?

Bill Nelson is a former Astronaut and the incumbent. He's a blue dog Democrat which means he's left of Marco Rubio, but not by much. Nelson's platform is to stay in the Senate.

Rick Scott is the current governor, carpetbagger, and living embodiment of Skeletor. His platform is to make a fuck-ton of money.
