(FOX NEWS) – Following Amazon’s decision earlier this month to scrap plans to build a second headquarters in New York City, Florida Sen. Rick Scott seized the moment Friday and encouraged the tech giant to consider moving to the Sunshine State.

The Republican lawmaker revealed on Twitter that he’d sent a letter to CEO Jeff Bezos a day earlier, in which he touted his state’s appreciation of “what a good job can mean for a family.”

“While I can’t argue with New York’s inhospitable business climate and anti-growth political leaders, I don’t think that should limit Amazon’s expansion plans. Florida presents an easy alternative,” he wrote in the letter.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Gov. Andrew Cuomo, both Democrats from New York, were mentioned specifically, with Scott claiming that their policies would not be good for Amazon.

“Rep. Ocasio-Cortez has shown that she has no interest in keeping jobs in New York,” Scott wrote. “The reality is, her political greed scuttled a deal that would have created 25,000 jobs for hard-working people in her community. Florida will happily welcome these jobs to our state.”
