Political neophyte Scott, former CEO of for-profit hospital chain Columbia/HCA and co-founder of a chain of walk-in clinics called Solantic, has catapulted to a 13-point lead over Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum in the Republican primary, thanks in part to a blitz of television ads that have already cost Scott $15 million.
Scott has a myriad of investments, but some highlights from the form:
– Scott and his wife own an $8.8 million house in Naples, which they bought in 2003 for $11.5 million.
– $62 million in Solantic stock
– $20 million in Drives, LLC, which makes mechanical chains
– $19 million in RLSI-CSP Capital Partners, LLC, “a specialist private equity investment management firm, focused on Asia”
– $1.1 million due from Quepasa, a Spanish/English social-networking site
Democratic candidate and Florida CFO Alex Sink and McCollum also released their financial disclosure forms. McCollum has assets of $1.3 million, while Sink has assets of $9.2 million.
