SCOTT IS two-term Florida governor
SUNSHINE STATE NEWS – While others have their eyes on taking his job as governor in 2018, Gov. Rick Scott is looking ahead to the U.S. Senate as the next step to climb on his political ladder.
On Tuesday, Scott hinted at a possible run for the Senate after he leaves office in two years.
The two-term Florida governor isn’t ruling out the possibility.
“It’s an option I have,” he said in Orlando at the Republican Governors Association meeting.
Scott didn’t necessarily confirm he would run for the seat, instead pledging his focus was on his current spot as the leader of the Sunshine State.
“Right now my whole focus is how do I do the best job I can as governor,” he continued.
If Scott does decide to run for U.S. Senate, he would face off against incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson, who has held the seat since 2001.
