Electric fan delays Florida governor debate

The Associated Press

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) Florida Gov. Rick Scott delayed the start of a debate because of an electric fan below Democratic challenger Charlie Crist's podium.

Crist was alone on the stage for about five minutes Wednesday night at Broward College because Scott said Crist's fan violated a rule against the use of electronic devices.

Crist always uses an electronic fan at public appearances to avoid sweating. He called Scott's position ridiculous. The Republican governor eventually strode on stage. Crist kept the fan.

The debate is the second between the two candidates.
