Rick Scott is one of the people who have been a part of United States politics for more than a decade. He started his career as a Governor of Florida in 2010, and after his re-election in 2014, he decided he wants to pursue something different and something bigger.
At the beginning of 2021, he assumed office as Senator of the US, and since then, people have been wondering what is the next step for him, and what he will choose to do after his time as Senator will pass. Keep on reading if you want to find out if Scott is planning a 2024 presidential run.
The rumors about this becoming a possibility began after Scott decided to put almost 20 thousand dollars into an advertisement campaign that seemed like he is trying to impeach the current president of the United States. In the same campaign, it looked like Scott is trying to show the former president, Trump, like a person who was wrong for the position, and who is not someone the people should trust again.
Even though this campaign first run almost a year and a half ago, people were starting to wonder if this means that Rick is going to try and run for the presidential elections, and if he is trying to influence the voters long before the actual run starts.
Scott has been a person that the voters trust since he has already been a part of politics for more than a decade, but there has been a lot of controversies involving him. According to Scott Jason Cooper, the mishap with his assistant was one of the things that put a stain on his reputation, and he has also been accused of money laundering and using finances to throw off his opponents.
What is he saying about it?
According to Scott, these rumors are not true, and he is not looking to become a president of the United States. He has stated, on more than several occasions, that he is in full support of the previous president, Donald Trump, and that he believes that Trump was the right choice as a president, and did much more for the country than the current one.
If this is his personal opinion, or if Rick is just supporting Trump because of the fact that they are representing the same party, is yet to be seen. However, he has been saying that he loves his current position as a Senator and that he feels it is much better for him to focus on it instead of pursuing dreams that he may not necessarily have. What is going to happen is left for the future, and maybe Rick Scott will change his opinion and choose to run for president in the next elections.
Nevertheless, even people who are supporting him suggest that maybe his past and all the controversies that were connected with him put too big of a shade on his reputation. Maybe he will be successful in his campaign like he was with everything else in his past, but this begs the question if money can really buy all the power and if it can erase every single thing that has been done or said.
