    Florida Gov. Rick Scott is visiting Kentucky on a two-day trip as part of his continued effort to lure businesses to relocate to the Sunshine State.

    Scott will arrive early Tuesday and is expected to announce during a stop in Lexington that a Kentucky company is bringing jobs to Florida. This is the fourth trip Scott has made this year to other states. Every state Scott has targeted so far is led by a Democratic governor.

    Kentucky voters will choose a new governor in November because incumbent Gov. Steve Beshear is leaving office due to term limits. Beshear has criticized Scott's previous efforts to lure Kentucky businesses.

    Beshear in 2013 blasted the Republican governor after Scott sent a letter asking Kentucky businesses to move. Beshear called the effort ``crude'' and in ``poor taste.'' He also said that Scott used misleading rankings in his pitch to the companies.
