Scott Asks for Prayers for Ailing Mother
Gov. Rick Scott has canceled appearances scheduled for this afternoon to fly to Kansas City, Mo., where his mother Esther is in the hospital with an infection.
Scott asked for prayers on his Facebook page in disclosing the information.
“She is in the ICU fighting an infection,” Scott said. “This has been a tough year for our family. Ann lost her father in January and her mother in September.”
Esther Scott campaigned with the governor when he was running in 2010.
