PLANT CITY, Fla. (AP) - Florida's increasingly bitter and expensive campaign for governor is kicking into gear with two months left before election day.

Gov. Rick Scott began a two-week bus tour along the crucial interstate 4 corridor, where he railed against former Gov. Charlie Crist as someone who is just like president barack obama. Scott also called Crist a “slick politician” and “smooth talker” who didn't achieve much during his four years in office.

Crist attended Labor Day picnics in eastern Hillsborough County, where he called Scott a “corporate governor” who is “crushing the middle class” with higher utility rates and property insurance rates.

Scott is a republican. Crist is a democrat, but he was a republican when he was elected as governor.
