If Florida voters who remain undecided on this year's gubernatorial race hoped to come away from last night's CNN debate knowing more about either Charlie Crist or Rick Scott, they almost certainly wound up disappointed.

Packing up the kids and walking to the corner to go to a Rays game, to see the Bucs or even to spend the day at the sponge docks in Tarpon Springs may be an idea that is not so far off into the future. Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART) Authority, Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA), Manatee County Area Transit (MCAT) and Sarasota County Area Transit (SCAT) are nearing a regional transit program that could cover eight Tampa Bay area counties.

Their last debate was most noted for a seven-minute delay while the candidates squabbled over whether a fan constituted a prohibited electronic device on stage. The contest did not seem to affect the deadlocked polling of voters who remain essentially split on whether to reelect Florida Governor Rick Scott or replace him with his predecessor, Republican-turned Independent-turned Democrat Charlie Crist. Tonight, the two candidates will take to the CNN stage for one last chance to differentiate themselves to undecided voters.
