Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) called on the Republican Party to unite around Donald Trump on Wednesday, saying the presidential front-runner is on track to secure the nomination.
“It is time for the ‘Stop Trump’ movement to end,” Scott wrote in a Facebook post. “Yesterday’s election results show that the anti-Trump efforts didn’t work.”
“Republicans now need to come together. 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.”
The Florida governor added that continued opposition to Trump will only help Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton if the two face off in the general election.
“The damage that President Obama has done to our country is serious and substantial. We cannot afford another four years of liberal incompetence, and that is exactly what Hillary Clinton would bring,” Scott continued.
“We’ve had an extensive debate amongst ourselves, it is now time to get serious about winning in November. This was a hard fought campaign, but now is the time for Republicans to unite.”
