On Monday Florida leaders troubled by the prospect of Rick Scott serving in the U.S. Senate will be available to share their concerns with the media in markets throughout Florida. Local leaders, state lawmakers and a survivor of the Pulse tragedy will be available to speak about how Scott has prioritized his self-serving politics at Floridian’s expense, and why Floridians don’t trust him to serve in the U.S. Senate.
