What a well-deserved slap in the face that would be for Senator Marco Rubio of Florida.
Washington Examiner Donald Trump has added a press conference at his Mar-A-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Fla., on Super Tuesday, fueling speculations of another high-profile endorsement.
The billionaire will host separate campaign rallies in Ohio and Kentucky during the day Tuesday, before arriving in Florida. Some speculate that Florida Gov. Rick Scott could announce his support of Trump at the press conference, which is scheduled two weeks before Florida’s Republican primary.
Scott has not yet endorsed a candidate, but the two-term governor praised Trump’s ability to attract frustrated Republican voters in an op-ed published in January by USA Today. “There is no doubt that Donald is a man that speaks and tweets his mind freely,” he wrote.
Now that Trump has earned the endorsements of two other sitting Republican governors, Chris Christie (N.J.) and Paul LePage (Maine), Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama, as well as former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, Scott could be under pressure to support the billionaire if he’s chosen not to back his home state senator and GOP candidate Marco Rubio.
