Gov. Rick Scott discussing Donald Trump



Not a huge surprise, given his endorsement, but an aide to Gov. Rick Scott confirms he will attend the GOP convention.

It's not clear if Scott will have a speaking role. Scott endorsed Donald Trump the day after the March 15 presidential primary. "The voters are speaking clearly – they want a businessman outsider who will dramatically shake up the status quo in Washington," he said.

Sen. Marco Rubio is not attending, citing a need to campaign for re-election. Jeb Bush is not going, either, because he does not support Trump.
