Scott continues stealth jobs mission

Nobody’s biting yet, but Gov. Rick Scott remains in Tennessee’s capital city for a second day of business recruitment.

The governor’s schedule showed Scott meeting early Thursday with building materials manufacturer Louisiana-Pacific Corp., better known as LP, in Nashville, followed by a meeting simply listed as “business development meeting.”

The trip, which kicked off without any pre-announced hoopla as had been his style when venturing the past couple of years into states with Democratic governors — including Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New York and California — featured meetings Wednesday with officials from Tractor Supply Co. in Brentwood, Tenn., along with Nashville-based electronics company Griffin Technology and tire company Bridgestone Americas.
