From Florida Politics’ Mitch Perry, 02/23/2016:

The quiet speculation broke out into the open on Tuesday, when The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza listed Scott on a short-list of possible running mates that Trump might be contemplating as he continues to roll through the Republican primary and caucus calendar.

Like Trump, Scott was a lifelong non-politician until he opted to run for Governor in 2010. Like Trump, Scott made a fortune in the private sector. …

… Were Trump-Scott to win, the Governor would have to resign, making Lieutenant Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera — briefly — governor. That is, unless CLC is also elected to the U.S. Senate. At that point, the line of succession dictates that Attorney General Pam Bondi would be named governor.
