Trump wins major home-state endorsement in snub to DeSantis

Former President Donald Trump has won a major home-state endorsement over Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

Fox News confirmed Thursday that Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., is throwing his support behind Trump in what could be described as a huge snub to DeSantis, who remains Trump’s primary rival in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.

When reached for comment, DeSantis’ campaign told Fox News that the governor “has more endorsements from state legislators than the former president in Iowa (41), New Hampshire (62), and South Carolina (16).” 

Trump is scheduled to hold multiple events in Florida over the next few days, including in the Orlando area, and a rally next Wednesday, the same night as the next Republican debate, in Hialeah.
