BREAKING: Florida Gov. Set To Endorse Candidate On Super Tuesday, And It’s NOT Rubio

Super Tuesday is arguably the most important day in the primaries, and with so much hanging in the balance, a last-minute endorsement could be just what a candidate needs for an Election Day surge to squeak out a victory. Later this afternoon, Florida Governor Rick Scott is expected to do just that, even though his state’s primary isn’t for a couple weeks, only it’s not Florida Senator Marco Rubio he’s going to endorse.

So far, GOP frontrunner Donald Trump has picked up numerous high-profile endorsements from politicians and celebrities alike, and because of this, he’s soaring in popularity across the country. Well, it looks like he’s about to pick up another critical endorsement out of Florida. Insiders are saying that Governor Scott is going to throw his weight behind the billionaire.

The Miami New Times has more:

And there are hints that Florida’s Trump-lite governor, Rick Scott, might just jump on the bandwagon this afternoon. Trump has scheduled a last-minute news conference at his West Palm Beach mansion at 6 p.m., fueling speculation he’s adding the Sunshine State’s governor to his list of supporters.

Scott’s camp hasn’t commented on those rumors, and his official schedule for the day lists only an event in Pinellas County. “We’re currently in Tampa at a veterans event and then we’re headed back to Tallahassee,” a Scott spokesperson tells New Times. “If there are any changes to that schedule, we’ll let you know.”

But as Politico points out, it would be easy to make a change. Scott flies on a private charter and could easily make a detour to Palm Beach to back the Donald.

Scott’s endorsement would hardly be a shocker on the level of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s surprise support last month. Scott in January penned a glowing letter in USA Today praising Trump and comparing the Donald’s campaign to his own insurgent bid to become Florida’s governor.

With Scott’s support of Trump in the past, it would hardly be a surprise if he endorsed The Donald. However, it could give Trump the boost he needs in Texas, where he and Senator Ted Cruz are nearly neck-and-neck in the polls.
