Rick Scott schedules national media blitz for Thursday

in Statewide/Top Headlines by

Rick Scott‘s spot on Morning Joe last week may not have gone so well, but Thursday finds the Florida Governor up and down the cable dial.

His morning started with hits on Fox and Friends and CNBC’s Squawk Box before afternoon spots with Neil Caputo on Fox News and Jake Tapper on CNN.

Scott’s interest to national media may have something to do with his endorsement of Donald Trump.

“I’m asking all Republicans today to come together and begin preparing to win the general election in November,” Scott said in a statement posted to Facebook. “With his victories yesterday, I believe now is the time for Republicans to accept and respect the will of the voters and coalesce behind Donald Trump.”

Beyond that? Expect to hear that Scott likes his job as Governor, and that job creation is important to him.
