With Donald Trump continuing to storm through the Republican primary season — notching his latest victory in Tuesday’s Nevada caucuses — the political dartboard has now come out for figuring his vice presidential pick.
Florida Gov. Rick Scott is on the list, at least according to today’s Washington Post.
Scott drew national attention last month when he wrote an Op-Ed for USA Today, praising Trump for “capturing the frustration of many Americans.”
In the piece headlined “Donald Trump has America’s pulse,” Scott said he didn’t plan to endorse a candidate before Florida’s March presidential primary. But Scott said he knows Trump personally and as a “man who speaks and tweets his mind freely.”
Susie Wiles, is a co-chair of Trump’s presidential campaign in Florida and also managed Scott’s 2010 run for governor.
