Gov. Rick Scott officially endorses Donald Trump

Florida Governor Rick Scott officially endorsed Donald Trump for his bid for the GOP Presidential nomination Wednesday morning.

He announced his endorsement with a Facebook post from his public page, encouraging republicans to come together.

“I’m asking all Republicans today to come together and begin preparing to win the general
election in November,” Scott wrote in the post. “With his victories yesterday, I believe it is now time for Republicans to accept and respect the will of the voters and coalesce behind Donald Trump. The voters are speaking clearly – they want a businessman outsider who will dramatically shake up the status quo in Washington.”

The endorsement is added the Trumps long list of endorsements including Brian France, the CEO and Chairman of NASCAR, Jerry Falwell, Jr., the president of Liberty University, Rocky Boiman, a former member of the Tennessee Titans and current 700WLW talk show host and Chris Christie, New Jersey Governor.

This endorsement comes after Trump’s success Tuesday, March 15 when he won the Florida primaries, beating out Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. Trump also won the majority of votes in Illinois and North Carolina but lost 66 delegates to Ohio Gov. John Kasich in the winner-take-all state.
