THE VILLAGES Each detail of Florida Gov. Rick Scott's first budget signing was painstakingly considered.

From the location a conservative retirement community in Central Florida to the mini-red "veto" Sharpie pens Scott handed out as keepsakes.

<snip>

At the urging of Scott officials, Sumter County sheriff's deputies escorted a group of more than a dozen Democrats mainly retirees who live in The Villages from Thursday's event at the town square.

<snip>

Staffers and Republican operatives searched the crowd of about 200 looking for people holding anti-Scott signs. They were noted and asked to leave. Those with pro-Scott signs were allowed to stay.
