Scott to make it official: He's running for US Senate

Rick Scott: Nobody has asked for the Florida National Guard to patrol Mexican border.

Governor Rick Scott of the southeastern U.S. state of Florida has announced that he is running for the U.S. Senate, local media reported Monday.

Although President Donald Trump won Florida in the 2016 presidential race, President Barack Obama won the state twice and twice it was Obama backlash that pushed Scott to narrowly win the governorship.

Chris King, a Democratic candidate for governor of Florida, said, "Rick Scott launching his campaign from Orlando takes some gall -- 612 days passed between the shootings at Pulse and Parkland and Governor Scott did nothing to keep Floridians safe".

"I will bust my butt to win this election", Scott, 65, told a cheering crowd of supporters.

"We have to all acknowledge that Washington is a disaster". "Washington is full of old thinking". Without offering any specific praise for Scott, Rubio instead focused entirely on a partisan rationale, suggesting that to confirm federal judges, a larger GOP majority is necessary (an odd claim, given that the 51-49 Senate majority has not voted down a single Trump court nominee).

His announcement was a preview of expected attacks against Nelson, a three-term incumbent who previously served in the U.S. House, the state Legislature and in Cabinet-level elected positions in state government during a career that spans more than four decades.

Democrats, if they see a blue wave continue its gonna go against Rick Scott. "People ask me that a bunch of times, about 'Are you this or are you that?' No". Who's the best man to represent Florida in Washington? The Nelson-Scott race will be expensive - and nasty. The report confirmed months of speculation over Scott's prospective candidacy.

During an appearance last month in Florida, Nelson said he was ready for a challenge by Scott.

Lt. Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera said, "Jeri was a part of our team for many years".

"Instead of creating the jobs our state needs for the future, over half the counties in Florida are worse off today than before the recession".

Scott issued a release describing Bustamante as "terrific and selfless" and said, "Her personality filled rooms and hearts".

"I've always run every race like there's no tomorrow -regardless of my opponent", Nelson said Monday. "And guess what? I'm not going to fit into Washington either". I've been very clear.

"We can change Washington".

Rick Scott announced his plans Monday to run for the Senate against Democratic Sen.

While most everything about the upcoming race is up in the air at this point, Nova Southeastern's Charles Zelden says two things are for sure.

Before the killings of 17 people at a Florida high school in February, Scott had an A+ rating from the National Rifle Association.
