Sometimes it can be hard for journalists, political observers, and yes, even his Republican allies to understand how ticks.
Scott almost never lets his guard down - especially when dealing with the press. He can seem like a robot when he delivers the same message and talking points over and over again.
Scott is a former lawyer who dealt with mergers and acquisitions before he helped set up what would be the nation's largest hospital chain before its steep fall amid federal investigations into fraud.
Looking at his history in the private sector and even in the public arena now for nearly five years it's clear that Scott views himself as a dealmaker. (Which is why he may ultimately endorse Donald Trump for president, but that's for another day.)
The Associated Press was the first to report that the state of Florida late Friday filed a federal lawsuit asking a judge to immediately shut down the blackjack tables operated at the tribe's casinos across the state.

Still it's a bit of swerve for the Scott administration and for a governor whose own political committee in 2013 got a $500, 000 check from the tribe. When point blank asked about suing the tribe this past Tuesday Scott got a tad testy and promised only that he "do the right thing for our state."

In 1991 Kim Cahill responded to an out of date ad for a singer in a local industry trade magazine. The edgy pop rock sound from the duo would catch an ear in the Los Angeles and...
