Attorney General Bill McCollum is taking his loss to Rick Scott very hard. In a brief meeting with reporters in Tallahassee, McCollum made it clear he is in no rush to endorse Scott.
"I still have serious questions and I have had them throughout the time that I've had the very brief acquaintanceship with Rick Scott about issues of his character, his integrity, his honesty, things that go back to Columbia/HCA ," said McCollum. "I have not had the occassion to actually every really get acquainted with him....as other voters will do I will judge him throughout this campaign."
Asked if he would eventually endorse Scott, the Republican candidate for Florida governor, McCollum said, "I'm not endorsing anyone right now in this race."
As for his loss Tuesday, McCollum said, "I'm disappointed we didn't prevail the other night but we've got to move on and that's the way life is - you get up the next morning, you put your boots on and you get back to work."
