Naples voters celebrate Rick Scott, mourn Cubs

While many Floridians in and around Naples are celebrating the gubernatorial win of hometown boy Rick Scott, there was another election Tuesday - 3,000 miles away - that was also of great significant to the area.

Voters in Mesa, Ariz. approved Prop 420 by an overwhelming margin, allowing the city to spend up to $99 million for a new Cubs spring training facility. The team already has the largest park in spring training and its only 13 years old, but when investors in Naples started making a move for the team, Mesa officials agreed to build a new spring training complex, bigger and more expensive than any other ever seen. The Tuesday vote all but finalized the project.
