Scott calls Trump 'fun to watch' and dismisses VP speculation
Gov. Rick Scott calls Donald Trump "fun to watch," but he sidestepped questions Wednesday about whether he will soon endorse the New York billionaire for president.
"He keeps winning every race," Scott told reporters. "I'm not involved in presidential politics. I'm involved in trying to have a good end of session. But it's fun to watch."
Scott also lightly dismissed media speculation that he would make a logical running mate for Trump. "I'm focused on this job. I've got three more years in this job," Scott said.
The governor recently wrote a commentary for USA Today in which he gushed about Trump: "I think he is capturing the frustration of many Americans after seven years of President Obama’s very intentional government takeover of the U.S. economy," Scott wrote.
Scott said "I haven't decided" whether to endorse a candidate before Florida's March 15 presidential primary.
