Governor Scott Votes for Romney in Hometown of Naples

NAPLES, Fla. (AP) -- Governor Rick Scott has cast his ballot in his hometown of Naples.
The Naples Daily News reports Scott waited in line for about 40 minutes before voting around 8 a.m. Tuesday. The governor was voting with his wife, daughter and son-in-law.
Scott called Election Day "a great day for America." He says he voted for Republicans Mitt Romney for president and Connie Mack for the U.S. Senate.
State officials say more than 4.5 million people had already voted in Florida, either by mail or in person, before the polls opened Tuesday. Of those voters, 43 percent were Democrats and 39 percent were Republicans.
Despite record turnout in many parts of the state, Scott rejected calls to extend the early voting an extra day to alleviate the long lines.
