OVERLOOKED

Don’t Forget About Florida

June 27, 2014, 4 a.m.

What’s the deal with the Flor­ida gubernat­ori­al race? It’s largely be­ing over­looked amid the de­luge of cov­er­age fo­cused on Sen­ate races and 2016 man­euv­er­ings, des­pite the pres­ence of two in­triguing politi­cians — Rick Scott and Charlie Crist. And polit­ic­al in­siders there ex­pect up­ward of $150 mil­lion to be spent on the coun­try’s fourth largest state — a heck of a lot more than just about any three Sen­ate races in the coun­try this year. Throw in the closely watched His­pan­ic vote — an­oth­er ele­ment miss­ing from most midterm con­tests — and you have your­self one in­ter­est­ing race. That is, if any­one would no­tice.
