TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida Gov. Rick Scott's campaign for re-election is hitting Democratic rival Charlie Crist with a barrage of attacks but his campaign team has also committed a series of blunders this year.

Examples include mega-millionaire Scott criticizing Crist as being an elitist for wearing a Rolex watch. His staff set up a roundtable to discuss the president's health care overhaul only to have seniors they brought together praise the law. Scott's finance chairman quit shortly after one of Scott's political advisers criticized him to a national media outlet.

Scott refuses to answer questions about his campaign even though he's asserting more control over it than he did four years ago. A spokesman acknowledged that mistakes were made but pointed out polls show that Scott is no longer trailing Crist.
