At the Republican Jewish Coalition conference over the weekend, Gov. Rick Scott (R) “who is edging closer toward a run for Senate, led off his remarks by calling [mega-donor Sheldon] Adelson and his spouse, Miriam, ‘great friends’ who he’d known for a long time. … Scott, who held a number of donor meetings over the weekend, was shepherded around the Venetian by Fred Karlinsky, a Florida attorney who sits on the committee’s board of directors.” Curt Anderson, a GOP strategist, was with Scott at the conference.

MONEY MATTERS. As Scott contemplates a bid, one factor for him to consider is how his money would be disclosed and managed in the Senate. The Senate “has significantly tighter financial disclosure requirements than Florida. Assets in the name of First Lady Ann Scott, for instance, are not required to be disclosed under Florida's blind trust law, but would be for a U.S. Senate candidate or senator. Likewise, Scott no longer would be allowed to use a longtime business associate and partner to manage his blind trust because the Senate requires a ‘completely independent’ trustee.” (Tampa Bay Times)
