Florida Sen. Rick Scott endorses Trump, says its time to 'unite' GOP for 2024

Republican Sen. Rick Scott of Florida announced Thursday he was endorsing former President Donald Trump for the GOP nomination — snubbing Ron DeSantis, Scott’s successor as the Sunshine State’s governor.

Scott, 70, argued in a Newsweek op-ed that the time had come for Republicans to get behind one candidate to defeat President Biden, and that while any Republican candidate would be better than the 80-year-old incumbent, GOP voters had made it clear they want Trump back in the White House.

“I am optimistic that we can return America to its rightful position of economic and military strength and the undisputed moral leader of the free world, but only with strong leadership in the White House,” Scott wrote.

“That is why I support my friend President Donald J. Trump to be the 47th president of the United States and encourage every Republican to unite behind his efforts to win back the White House.
