Governor Rick Scott is standing by his Lieutenant Governor Jennifer Carroll telling reporters today he doesn’t see a reason why he wouldn’t run with her in 2014.
Carroll is being accused by a former employee of having a sexual relationship with a female travel aide and possibly covering up an arson investigation inside the state capitol.
Reporter: Do you plan on having her as your running mate when you run for reelection in 2014.
Scott: She’s done a great job.
Reporter: But do you plan on having her as your running mate though, again?
Scott: She’s done a great job, why wouldn’t I?
Scott also says he supported Carroll’s decision to apologize to lesbian groups. While fighting off the accusations Carroll told reporters she was too pretty to be gay. She later apologized in writing for those remarks.
