Florida Gov.-elect Rick Scott's campaign strategist says his candidate took advantage of a "perfect storm" of opportunity to win the election. According to the Tampa Tribune, the primary race against Republican Tony Fabrizio and the general election versus Democrat Alex Sink was one long "battle."

"Other than the candidate's financial wherewithal, we had nothing else on our side," he told the Tribune. "Everything else was aligned against us. So it took a lot of fortitude -- more so on Rick's part than anyone else's -- to get and go out every day and do it."

Scott had never held elective office before, but he spent more than $73 million of his own fortune to win the gubernatorial election.
