List of Florida Governors
The Governor of Florida is the head of the executive branch of government in the U.S. state of Florida, and the commander-in-chief of the state's military forces. The governor has a duty to enforce state laws, and the power to either approve or veto bills passed by the Florida Legislature, to convene the legislature, and to grant pardons, except in cases of impeachment.
When Florida was first acquired by the United States, future president Andrew Jackson served as its military governor. Florida Territory was established in 1822, and five people served as governor over six distinct terms. The first territorial governor, William Pope Duval, served 12 years, the longest of any governor to date. Since statehood in 1845 there have been 43 people who have served as governor, one of whom served two distinct terms. Three state governors have served two full four-year terms: William D. Bloxham, in two stints; and Reubin Askew and Jeb Bush, who each served their terms consecutively. Bob Graham almost served two terms, as he resigned with only three days left. The shortest term in office belongs to Wayne Mixson, who served three days following the resignation of his predecessor.
The current governor is Rick Scott, who took office on January 4, 2011, following the 2010 election.

Florida Governor Candidate John Wayne Smith Removed From List of Candidates on LP.org | Independent Political Report
John Wayne Smith ———- Forwarded message ———- From: Wes Benedict Date: Wed, Sep 4, 2013 at 8:55 PM Subject: Re: Florida candidate – governorwwww To: LPF chair Cc: Dana Moxley-Cummings , , Carla Howell , Bob Johnston , Alex , Treasurer , Lynn House Dana Moxley Cummings, A quick summary of our practice, which varies in some cases, is that we try to list and write news articles about whatever candidates we’re aware of for most states, and try to treat them evenly and positively, but often defer to state chair preferences when we’re aware of them. So per your request we’ll remove John Wayne Smith from our candidate list (probably tomorrow) and we will try to run others by you (or check the LPF website) in the future before listing.
