Scott trying on Zappos for size

Gov. Rick Scott turned up in Las Vegas Friday, working the business development crowd as the state’s monthly jobless numbers — down to 4.1 percent — came out.

Scott’s daily schedule had him meeting with a trio of businesses — involving air travel, a steel-framed construction system and shoes, — during a trip that received little advance billing from his office.

 Allegiant Air, already the dominant carrier at St. Pete-Clearwater International airport was first on the list of meetings with Scott, followed by online shoe and clothing shop Zappos (an Amazon subsidiary) and, finally, GigaCrete.
