Scott praises Gorsuch, urges foes (cc: Bill Nelson) to ‘stop playing games’

Gov. Rick Scott and President Donald Trump in the White House last month.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott praises President Donald Trump‘s nomination of Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court in a Miami Herald letter to the editor today.

 

Nelson and Gorsuch.

Scott, who faces gubernatorial term limits next year and is expected to run for the seat of Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, doesn’t mention Nelson in the letter. But a day after Nelson announced his opposition to Gorsuch and support for a filibuster to block an up-or-down vote, Scott accuses Gorsuch’s opponents of engaging in petty politics.

 

“Future Supreme Court battle will shape our lives as American citizens,” Scott writes. “And, while many in the Senate seem to take delight in challenging President Trump’s appointments for no reason of any discernable value to their constituents, that should not be done for Judge Gorsuch. Let’s stop playing games in Washington. Let’s get something done.”
