With the Florida primary less than 2 weeks away, Florida Governor Rick Scott has said he will not make an endorsement, despite Senator Marco Rubio vying for his support!

Instead, Scott said he wants to remain neutral so as to not influence voters ahead of March 15.

From Breaking 911:

Florida Governor Rick Scott says he won’t endorse Trump or anyone else before the March 15 primary.

I have made it my practice to not get involved in primaries because picking the Republican candidate is the voters’ job.

The political class opposed me when I first ran for office, they did not want a businessman outsider, but the voters had other ideas.

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.

I continue to believe that economic growth and job creation is the most crucial issue for the next President to tackle. We have turned our economy around here in Florida by bringing conservative free market principles to government. Without economic growth our country will fail to become stronger domestically or internationally.
