Rick Scott Considers Run for Senate in 2018

From the Associated Press, 11/15/2016:

Orlando, Fla. Florida Gov. Rick Scott is considering running for the U.S. Senate.

During a wide-ranging interview with reporters on Tuesday, Scott said seeking the seat held by U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson is an option for him in 2018.

Scott was elected in 2014, but is limited by law from seeking another term.

Scott spoke of his intentions while attending the Republican Governors Association annual conference in Orlando. He also said he was excited by Republican Donald Trump’s election as president, and that other Republicans who offered only lukewarm support for Trump previously should now “embrace him”.

Rick Scott’s final day in office is January 19, 2019. The state of Florida has 781 days left of his governance.
