Are you kidding me? Florida Governor Rick Scott refused to come to the microphone because his opponent Charlie Crist had a fan under his podium, which apparently violated the rules of the debate. Scott looks like a big baby and Crist looks like a jerk for violating the pre-approved rules. I’m glad I don’t live in Florida and have to pick between them on Election Day. What blatant disrespect displayed by both candidates for the voters of Florida. This is a perfect example of why people are so disgusted with politics.

The debate eventually took place and Politico.com says it was quite a battle:  check out article

Although, at least they have televised governor debates in Florida. In New York, Gov. Cuomo keeps ducking debates with Rob Astorino!
