Yet another Florida lawmaker has endorsed President Donald Trump rather than Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., further asserting the 45th president’s strong position to win the Sunshine State in the 2024 Republican primary.
In a sparkling op-ed for Newsweek, Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., boldly laid out the reasons why Joe Biden’s administration had failed the people of the United States and why he believed that President Trump would bring “strong leadership” back to the White House to restore American greatness.
He wrote, “It’s time for the Republican Party to come together, behind one candidate, and declare with one voice that we are united in our efforts to defeat Joe Biden and rescue America.”
The call to unite echoes the encouragement toward unity that President Trump has embraced lately.
While speaking in Sen. Scott’s home state of Florida on Saturday, the president pointed to the “Republican establishment” and urged the GOP to unite behind a single candidate in the 2024 election.
“Every dollar that we spend on these Never-Trump PACS is a dollar that’s being donated to reelect Joe Biden,” he explained.
The president also mentioned the endorsement that he had just received from Sen. Scott while he was in Florida. Americans may also recall that Sen. Scott previously served as Florida’s 45th governor.
On Wednesday, Trump will again hold an event in the Sunshine State, where he will hold a signature rally in Hialeah on Nov. 8.
In his editorial endorsement, Sen. Scott stated that President Trump made America “Safer and more prosperous” under his leadership.
He continued, “I’d never demand or even ask that another candidate drop out of a political contest. That’s a decision for every candidate to make for themselves. But I’m supporting Donald Trump for president because the stakes are too high.”
Sen. Scott called it “midnight in America” and argued that Trump was the “one person running who has the strength to bring America back, who is well positioned to win the Republican primary, and who will win the general election.”
