I have spoken with a reliable source telling me that a little over a week ago, Mike Huckabee approached the Rick Scott campaign and made overtures that his endorsement could be had for $250,000 dollars.
A heated exchange occurred between Rick Scott and his campaign staff whether to pay-for-play for Huckabee's endorsement. Scott made the final call saying that, 'we're not going to have that kind of a campaign.'
My source is inside the Scott campaign and cannot be disclosed. Suffice to say they are on the payroll.
Once the offer was rejected, Mike Huckabee obliged establishment candidate Bill McCollum with the endorsement.
