TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A Florida legislator says in an e-mail that gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott has vowed to support a bill outlawing almost any abortion.

That would have been a change from previous statements, but Scott's campaign said Friday he hasn't re-evaluated his position. The Ledger of Lakeland reported Rep. Charles Van Zant told supporters in an e-mail endorsement of Scott the gubernatorial candidate repeatedly promised to support a bill banning abortion unless the pregnancy threatens the life of the woman.

However, a Scott spokesman said Friday he also believed the procedure should still be available in cases of rape or incest.

Van Zant did not immediately returned messages left Thursday by The Associated Press.
