Florida Gov. Scott addresses an economic summit in Orlando

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Florida Governor Rick Scott said on Thursday he would not endorse anyone in the 2016 Republican presidential race, despite the candidacy of a senator from his home state, Marco Rubio.

“I trust the voters, so I will not try to tell the Republican voters in Florida how to vote by endorsing a candidate before our primary on March 15. I believed in the voters when I first ran for office, and I still believe in them today,” Scott, a Republican, said in a statement.

    Seriously? Is the man really afraid to speak up and declare his choice? What a great example of profiles of courage…not!

      Think about it, Lynda. If they held a gubernatorial election in Florida tomorrow, a recycling bin would beat Scott. This means his precious boychild (the Cuban actually born here) has a chance to win that primary. His endorsement would tank Rubio’s chances there and pave the way for the alien life form attached to the head of the spray tanned megalomaniac.
