TBT: A Rick Scott and Mike Pence moment in Fort Lauderdale



Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence crossed paths in Fort Lauderdale earlier this year at an event that also featured Bill Scherer, a lawyer and lobbyist who has been a prominent figure in Republican circles for a long time -- and who's a native of Indiana. Photos from the Feb. 5 event indicate they were at the Tripp Scott law firm, whose partners include former Senate President Jim Scott and Ed Pozzuoli, a former Broward County GOP chairman who's a delegate to next week's convention.

Speculation is mounting that Pence will be Donald Trump's choice for running mate -- especially after Pence's name was not listed among the speakers at next week's convention in Cleveland.

Take a look here from the Conrad Scherer firm's web site, and Tripp Scott's site includes a Pozzuoli interview with Pence.
