Rick Scott: RPOF straw poll winner will be the next GOP nominee



Gov. Rick Scott did a little political analysis on Fox & Friends this morning, and gave a plug for the Republican Party of Florida Presidency 5 debate and straw poll. Scott pointed out that Ronald Regan, George Bush, and Bob Dole all won the party's straw polls and became the nominee (Dole ultimately lost to Bill Clinton).

"Whoever wins this straw poll on Saturday will be the Republican nominee and I believe the Republican nominee will be the next President,” Scott said. “I really believe whoever wins this is going to be the next President.”
