The day after a decisive victory in the Sunshine State, Donald Trump earned the endorsement of Florida Gov. Rick Scott, who called the celebrity billionaire “a businessman outsider who will dramatically shake up the status quo in Washington.”
Scott’s endorsement — which was posted on his official Facebook page Wednesday morning — did not include any praise for Trump or much enthusiasm for his particular policies. Instead it emphasized his success in the primaries and the paramount need for Republicans to unite behind the likely nominee and send him to the Oval Office in the fall.
“I believe it is now time for Republicans to accept and respect the will of the voters and coalesce behind Donald Trump,” Scott wrote. He concluded:
Here’s what really matters – we have to elect a Republican in the fall in order to grow jobs, rebuild our military, and put a person who respects the Constitution on the Supreme Court.
This is the stuff that truly matters.
If we spend another four months tearing each other apart, we will damage our ability to win in November. It’s time for an end to the Republican on Republican violence. It’s time for us to begin coming together, we’ve had a vigorous primary, now let’s get serious about winning in November.
