President Trump “has already publicly called on” Gov. Rick Scott (R) “to run, but Scott again this week insisted he had not made up his mind. And he sidestepped questions about whether the upset win of” Sen.-elect Doug Jones (D) “in the neighboring state of Alabama is a sign that a GOP candidate could have difficulty next year in a state that has backed candidates of both parties.”
"I haven't made a decision about my future," Scott said. "That race is in 2018, it's still 2017."
“There have been multiple signs that Scott will run, including his recent decision to not seek the chairmanship of the Republican Governors Association.” (AP)
