Rick Scott To Attend National Governor Meetings In D.C.
Florida Gov. Rick Scott will be among other governors from across the nation to meet with President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence in Washington D.C.
Scott is scheduled to leave Thursday and will attend events connected to the winter meetings of the National Governors Association and the Republican Governors Association. According to the Associated Press, Scott is reportedly the favorite to become Vice Chair of the Republican Governors Association, which would mean he would lead the organization in 2018.
Scott’s trip to D.C. will include a Friday luncheon with Pence and a visit to the White House on Sunday. He is also reportedly going to take part in the “State Solutions Conference” on Friday hosted by POLITICO.
Scott is friends with Trump and backed his bid for president after he won Florida’s presidential primary. He constantly criticized former president Barack Obama.
