FL SENATE: Rick Scott (R)

About the State

Campaign Website

About Rick:

Governor Rick Scott has spent each day as Florida’s 45th governor working to turn around Florida’s economy and secure the state’s future as the best place for families and businesses to succeed. Governor Scott grew up in public housing in the Midwest as his adoptive father, a World War II veteran and truck driver, and his mother, a store clerk, struggled to financially support their family. After marrying his high school sweetheart, Ann, Governor Scott joined the Navy and used the G.I. Bill to go to college and eventually open his first business – a donut shop so his mom could have a job. He ultimately ran the world’s largest healthcare company, with hundreds of thousands of employees from across the world.

Governor Scott knows firsthand that a good paying job is one of the most important things for a family, and following Florida’s economic collapse ten years ago, he made the decision to run for governor as a businessman with no political experience. Since being elected, Governor Scott has successfully championed more than $10 billion in tax cuts and reduced more than 5,200 burdensome regulations, allowing Florida businesses to create nearly 1.5 million new jobs and helping the unemployment rate drop to one of the historic lows, even lower than the national unemployment level. Under Governor Scott’s watch, historic investments have been made into our education system, transportation infrastructure, and the environment – all while paying $9 billion in state debt. He has also helped navigate Florida through some of the state’s most challenging times in recent history, including Hurricanes Hermine, Matthew, and Irma, as the state reached a 46-year crime low and maintained record tourism. As governor, Scott has fought tirelessly for Florida families and job creators, and now, he is working to bring that fight to D.C. to secure Florida’s success for generations to come.
