Conservative businessman Donald Trump had historic victories last night on Super Tuesday, including in the Sunshine State, which forced Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) to drop out of the race.
Now, Florida Governor Rick Scott, a TEA Party favorite, just gave Trump the biggest endorsement of his presidential campaign!
In a bombshell Facebook post, Governor Scott calls for all Republicans to unite behind Trump’s candidacy:
I’m asking all Republicans today to come together and begin preparing to win the general election in November.
With his victories yesterday, I believe it is now time for Republicans to accept and respect the will of the voters and coalesce behind Donald Trump.
This has been a hard fought primary, with an outstanding roster of excellent candidates, including two of Florida’s favorite sons, and several Republican Governors who are close friends of mine.
But the voters are speaking clearly – they want a businessman outsider who will dramatically shake up the status quo in Washington.
When I first ran for Governor the political class and party leaders opposed me with great vigor, and some even said if I won the primary they would never vote for me. But the voters had other ideas, and they are the only ones who count.
Here’s what really matters – we have to elect a Republican in the fall in order to grow jobs, rebuild our military, and put a person who respects the Constitution on the Supreme Court.
This is the stuff that truly matters.
If we spend another four months tearing each other apart, we will damage our ability to win in November. It’s time for an end to the Republican on Republican violence. It’s time for us to begin coming together, we’ve had a vigorous primary, now let’s get serious about winning in November.
Other governors that have endorsed Trump are Chris Chris Christie of New Jersey, Paul LePage of Maine, and former Arizona governor Jan Brewer.
Thank you to the Governor of Florida, Rick Scott, for your endorsement. I greatly appreciate your support!
