Gov. Rick Scott called on fellow Republicans Wednesday to stop trying to derail Donald Trump’s road to the party’s presidential nomination.
The Florida governor, who endorsed Trump a day after he won the state’s primary last month, posted the message on his Facebook page. Trump’s sweep of five states Tuesday may have sparked Scott.
“It is time for the ‘Stop Trump’ movement to end,” Scott wrote. “Yesterday’s election results show that the anti-Trump efforts didn’t work.
“Republicans now need to come together,” Scott added. “Donald Trump is going to be our nominee, and he is going to be on the ballot as the Republican candidate for President. The Republican leaders in Washington did not choose him, but the Republican voters across America did choose him. The voters have spoken.”
Scott also warned that those looking to block Trump from gaining the nomination are effectively helping Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton.
“If the anti-Trump groups don’t stop now, their efforts will be nothing more than a contribution to the Clinton campaign,” Scott wrote.
