Florida Gov. Rick Scott has canceled his trip Monday to New York to meet with presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump so he can monitor a tropical depression expected to hit the state, Fox News confirmed Sunday.
Scott and Trump were purportedly going to discuss Trump’s general election strategy in Florida. President Obama won the state in 2008 and 2012. A RealClearPolitics.com poll average shows Trump and Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton tied in a hypothetical matchup in the state.
Scott, a former businessman like Trump, was being mentioned as a possible vice presidential pick. However, the two-term governor ON Friday told CNN, which first reported the canceled meeting, that he was not interested.
Scott has endorsed Trump, who in March won the Florida primary.
