Former Miami Mayor Maurice Ferre, a Democrat, has announced he is backing Republican candidate Rick Scott for governor over state CFO Alex Sink, the Democrat.

ferre, endorses, scott, florida"On Nov. 2, I will vote for Rick Scott to be governor of Florida,” said Ferre, who served six terms as mayor. “I have never voted for a Republican in the 54 years I have voted, and I have never missed voting since I became of age in Miami.”

Ferre blasted the leadership of his party. "Despite the fact that I am a Democrat, I am deeply disturbed by the exclusionary direction of the Florida Democratic Party,” he said.

"Both the Republican and Democratic parties of Florida are broken. The first, by corruption and lying; the Democrats by ineptitude, unfairness and undemocratic ways,” Ferre said. “Mine will not be a vote for a political party; mine will be a vote for a person. I’ve spent time with Rick Scott. We talked about substantive issues. I am convinced Rick Scott has a superior understanding of the challenges that face our state.”
