CNN's Suzanne Malveaux discusses the Florida governor's race between Gov. Rick Scott and former Governor Charlie Crist.
A little appliance caused a big fuss at a Florida debate with Gov. Rick Scott and former Governor Charlie Crist, but Crist's fan isn't allowed on stage under the rules of an October 21 Florida governor's race debate that CNN is hosting in conjunction with Jacksonville affiliate WJXT.
The candidates were sent a memo on October 8 outlining the format, rules and logistical information for the debate. Among those rules: No electronic devices.
After being lampooned on social media with #fangate trending, Gov. Scott told CNN affiliate WPBF, "I think he was sweating and he needed a fan. I'm surprised he didn't try to ask for dry ice." Crist's campaign later started selling hand held fans that read, "I'm a fan of Charlie Crist."
Watch CNN on Tuesday, Oct. 21 at 7 p.m. ET to see Jake Tapper co-host the next live, one-hour gubernatorial debate in Jacksonville, Fla. between the two candidates.

ALS, (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), is a fatal fast moving disease of the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that affects more than 30,000 people at any given time. A person who has ALS loses their ability to control their voluntary muscles and eventually cannot swallow, speak, breathe, or move. They become completely paralyzed and are dependent on machines to live-relying on a feeding tube, trache, breathing machine, motorized wheelchair, and communications equipment. ALS patients usually live 2 to 5 years after their diagnosis, although there are rare exceptions. There is currently no cure for the disease. FULL POST
