Gov. Rick Scott speaks to Haitian Evangelical Crusade |

Interesting campaign event, and apparently it is historical. Click title for link. From the article:
Gov. Rick Scott spoke Sunday to nearly 1,000 Haitian-Americans, touching on his escape from a childhood of poverty and touting his efforts to create jobs during his first term in office.
Scott’s eight-minute speech at the Haitian Evangelical Crusade marked the first time a sitting governor has addressed the 29-year-old gathering of an estimated 50 congregations countywide.
Bishop Mathieu Jean-Baptiste invited Scott to speak Sunday on the first day of the crusade, a rousing, chorus-filled debut for the eight-day event.
“I want to establish a relationship between the government of Florida and the Haitian people,” Jean-Baptiste said. “This is about our community getting involved more with the government and the government getting to know the community.”
