Gov.-elect Scott back in Bay area Friday, touring USF

Tampa, Florida -- Florida's governor-elect will return to the Tampa Bay area on Friday after two stops here on Thursday.

Gov.-elect Rick Scott will tour the University of South Florida Research Park and hold a discussion about business and entrepreneurship, according to a news release from his staff.

The tour is scheduled to last from 8 a.m. until 8:30. At that point, Scott will hold a discussion with business students, young entrepreneurs, and executives.

The topic of the talk will be "how the state can grow through economic development and business," according to the release.

At 9:30, Scott has time scheduled to talk with reporters.

The USF visit is part of Scott's "Let's Get to Work" tour of Florida leading up to his inauguration in January.

From Tampa, he's set to travel to Orlando to tour the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute and discuss a topic the former healthcare executive knows well: the medical and healthcare industries.

Scott visited Bradenton and St. Petersburg on Thursday.
