Within minutes of Rick Scott's announcement Monday that he will challenge Sen. Bill Nelson, Democrats were swarming like ants on a jelly sandwich. As expected.
The Leon County Commission is scheduled to conduct a public hearing Tuesday night to discuss a proposed gun show loophole ordinance pushed by Commissioner Mary Ann Lindley.
