Confident Scott: ‘I will be the next great governor’by Dara Kam | November 3rd, 2010
A confident Scott and his wife Ann came on the stage shortly after 2 a.m. – nearly two hours after Alex Sink had gone home – and spoke to about 100 weary stragglers.
“I apologize this has taken so long,” the ever-polite Scott said, adding that he was glad it didn’t rain although it could have without him knowing it when he was sequestered in his suite watching the election returns on television.
“After all the votes are counted..I am absolutely confident I will be the next great governor of the state of Florida,” he said.
Scott said he would have more to say later today
“We know we’re going to win and we look forward to getting this state back to work,” he said, riffing on his trademark “Let’s Get to Work” campaign slogan.
Scott sidestepped a question about his disappointment over not being able to declare victory.
“I had a great speech,” he said, smiling. “I had a great speech. We had great confetti and everything. We’ll see you tomorrow.”
