Gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott voted this morning at Saint Ann’s Catholic Church in Naples.
He was cheered on by a crowd of boisterous supporters holding signs and braving the light drizzle.
Before entering the polling station, Scott, a Naples resident, shook hands and hugged each of his supporters, who had set up shop on a sidewalk just past the entrance.
After marking his ballot and exiting the polls, Scott was also greeted by a flock of reporters and photographers, as well as the chants from his supporters, “Let’s get to work.”
During a brief conference with reporters, the candidate predicted, “We’re going to have a big win tonight.”
Scott, who arrived at the polls just after 8 a.m., added that he hoped it would also be an early win, as well.
The Scott campaign will be in Fort Lauderdale tonight to hear election results.
