Rick Scott courts D.C. conservative establishment Wednesday
Rick Scott speaks in Green Cove Springs.

Rick Scott

While it’s anybody’s guess whether Florida Gov. Rick Scott is running for Senate in 2018 or beyond, what’s clear is that Scott is cultivating ties in Washington, D.C.

A spot on Fox News in the morning is followed by a meeting with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (a good move before, say, a Senate run).

That’s followed with a Heritage Foundation/National Review round table at 4, on Florida’s economic progress over the last five years.

Then? An American Spectator dinner.

A very efficient D.C. day trip, with Scott checking off a lot of establishment conservative boxes.
