Rick Scott officially won the election and is Florida’s next Governor. It was a long campaign that included a stop at Cuban Crafters Cigars factory and store in Miami, Florida. The election was close and yes, it included a celebratory Victory Cigar! While Governor elect Rick Scott waited for the final results, he held a victory cigar in his hand. It wasn’t just a regular cigar, it was a Medina 1959 Miami Edition Churchill that legendary cigar maker Manuel Medina personally hand made for him. The cigar had a cigar band with his campaign’s logo.
Election night started with Rick Scott in the lead. As the precincts started reporting the numbers between him and his Democrat opponent narrowed. Towards the end of the night it was a nail biter. Governor Rick Scott’s campaign workers and volunteers waited nervously until all the votes were counted. Finally Rick Scott claimed victory. Almost immediately the Medina 1959 Miami made cigars were lit up by the campaign staff. An emotional moment that will be remembered for years to come.
Those who know Rick Scott well will tell you that he is a brilliant and deliberative leader, who is as humble and nice as they come. He’s an occasional cigar smoker who’s new home will be the Governor’s Mansion in Tallahassee, Florida. It has a great backyard that’s perfect for cigar smoking.
