Florida Gov. Scott visits California on job-seeking trip

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Florida Gov. Rick Scott is the latest state leader on a jobs-poaching trip to California.

Scott will visit a jobs forum in Los Angeles on Monday, where he will discuss why California businesses should move their operations to Florida.

This is the second jobs-seeking trip Scott has made this year. In both instances, Scott is visiting states led by Democratic governors.

Scott has already taken shots at California Gov. Jerry Brown and his "tax-and-spend administration."

A spokesman for Brown said last month that it makes sense for Scott to visit California since its economy is accelerating and the state is creating jobs. Evan Westrup also said he hopes Scott's stay is "enjoyable and educational."
