Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) will travel to New York to meet with presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Monday as Trump begins plotting his general election campaign in Florida.
While the meeting is about strategy, according to a Scott aide, it could also stoke speculation about Trump's vice presidential selection process. Scott, who endorsed Trump in March, has said he is not interested in being the mogul's running mate. Nevertheless, their warm relationship makes him a name to watch.
Melissa Sellers, a spokesperson for Scott's political operation, confirmed the meeting Thursday. In a statement to The Washington Post, she said Scott and Trump plan to look ahead to the general election in the Sunshine State, which is expected to be a crucial battleground.
"Governor Scott looks forward to meeting with Mr. Trump to discuss his campaigns in Florida and how he thinks Mr. Trump will have a big win in the state in November," said Sellers.
A Trump spokeswoman also confirmed the meeting.
