The 2010 Florida gubernatorial election took place on November 2, 2010 to determine the Governor for the State of Florida. Republican-turned-Independent incumbent Governor Charlie Crist chose not to run for a second term. He instead ran (unsuccessfully) for the Senate seat vacated by Mel Martínez. This resulted in an open race for Governor of Florida in which Republican Rick Scott narrowly defeated Democrat Alex Sink.

  • The 2010 Florida gubernatorial election took place on November 2, 2010 to determine the Governor for the State of Florida. Republican-turned-Independent incumbent Governor Charlie Crist chose not to run for a second term. He instead ran (unsuccessfully) for the Senate seat vacated by Mel Martínez. This resulted in an open race for Governor of Florida in which Republican Rick Scott narrowly defeated Democrat Alex Sink. Despite mixed to unfavorable ratings, Rick Scott benefited greatly from the midterm GOP wave, in which Republicans made significant gains across the country. Scott was one of six Republican gubernatorial pick-ups nationwide (counting Crist now as an Independent). Alex Sink, the wife of 2002 gubernatorial candidate Bill McBride, made an issue over Scott's connections to Columbia/HCA, a Medicare billing fraud scandal. Scott was labeled a "crook" by his detractors, but still managed to outspend Sink, to the tune of $78 million of his personal wealth. The tight, and highly contentious election was one of the stand-out races in 2010. Despite not professing direct allegiance to the movement, Scott benefited from support and endorsement by Tea Party activists, an influential conservative voting block of the 2010 midterms. Furthermore, Scott ran aggressively against the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), and exit polls indicated considerable support for that position. (en)
