Rick Scott stumps for Trump on RNC's 'Make America Work Again' day



CLEVELAND -- The Republican National Convention has yet to confirm if and when Florida Gov. Rick Scott will speak to delegates. But he's already stumping for presumptive nominee Donald Trump.

Scott's name is on a list of campaign "surrogates" the Republican National Committee offered to reporters for interviews Tuesday. The theme of the day at the convention: "Make America Work Again."

Among the other names on the surrogate list are Nevada Gov. Pete Ricketts and former national GOP chairman and Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour.

Scott was elected in 2010 under the slogan, "Let's Get to Work."
