It is official. Rick Scott is Running for the United States Senate.
From Tampa Bay Times‘ Lawrence Mower, 04/09/2018:
Gov. Rick Scott announced his long-expected run for the U.S. Senate on Monday in an Orlando rally, setting the stage for a contentious and expensive battle against Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson.
… He kicked off his campaign by taking direct aim at Nelson, who was first elected to Senate in 2000, by calling for term limits for members of Congress.
“We shouldn’t be sending the same type of people to Washington,” he said. “This concept of career politicians has got to stop.”
