Scott and Romney at the Villages tomorrowby Dara Kam | September 30th, 2010
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will join GOP governor hopeful Rick Scott on a campaign stop in the Villages tomorrow.
Romney, who lost a presidential bid in the GOP primary two years ago, and Scott, who defeated Attorney General Bill McCollum in a brutal primary last month, will attend a rally and a meet-and-greet in the afternoon. Scott beat McCollum by about two percentage points in Lake County, where the Villages is located.
Romney is purportedly gathering steam for another presidential run in 2012.
The two businessmen have at least one thing in common. Romney spent about $45 million of his own money on his losing presidential campaign; Scott spent slightly more – $50 million – of his own fortune on his winning bid.
