Governor Rick Scott was set to debate against Charlie Crist Wednesday night but things got off to a rough start.
Apparently, Crist likes to be cool while he’s up on stage, so he brought with him a portable fan. The fan was hidden behind his podium and it could’ve gone completely unnoticed if Scott hadn’t of made a big deal of it.

Scott refused to come out on the stage because of this cooling device and the moderators of the debate were stumped. Why would the Governor of Florida make such a huge stink over a small, portable fan that was there to keep his opponent cool?
Gov, Rick Scott is refusing to show up at the press debate because Charlie Crist has a fan under his podium. This is not a joke it appears

Isn’t sad our Gov Rick Scott was more concerned about a fan than about the consumer, premium payer, utility payer, the little guy and gal.
