Gov. Rick Scott interested in running for Senate, according to report
Scott could be eyeing 2018 race
PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – Businessman-turned-Gov. Rick Scott could be running for office again in a few years.
Scott, 62, has told several top Republican fundraisers that he's interested in running for U.S. Senate in 2018, according to a report by the Tampa Bay Times.
That would be the same year that Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson's third term ends.
A U.S. Senate seat could open in 2016 if Republican Marco Rubio decides to run for president, but Scott would be in the middle of his second term as governor.
