Report: Florida Gov. Rick Scott To Endorse Donald Trump… UPDATE: No Super Tuesday Endorsement…
Florida Gov. Rick Scott is planning to endorse Donald Trump, according to Fox News’s Bret Baier.
Baier attributed the news to “two sources” Tuesday night.
Despite the report, a spokeswoman for the Florida governor told the Wall Street Journal Tuesday evening that Scott was in Tallahassee and “not endorsing Donald Trump.”
Scott’s endorsement would come at a critical time, just two weeks before the Florida primary — the first winner-take-all state.
The endorsement would directly undermine one of Rubio’s last, best chances to gain traction in the Republican primary.
UPDATE: At 9:48 PM EST, Baier tweeted that the governor’s office has told him “that there is no endorsement tonight said to be in Tallahassee.”
