Scott: 'I'm Not Endorsing a Candidate'
“I’m not endorsing a candidate,” Scott responded when asked to make a prediction in the primary during a meeting with members of the Florida Retail Federation at the Hotel Duval in Tallahassee on Thursday.
Scott then referred to the polls -- noting former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney was at the moment ahead -- instead of making a prediction.
He added that he has talked to the GOP candidates and is only giving them advice. And that advice is that the core of supporters -- for him in 2010 it was the tea party -- is important.
Scott also provided a little insight into his view of endorsements.
“As you all know, when I ran everybody endorsed me,” Scott joked about his initial lack of outside political support when he undertook his 2010 campaign.
Scott had previously said he would have to consider a candidate’s jobs plans when considering an endorsement.
