MIAMI, FL -- President Trump is urging Governor Rick Scott to run for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Bill Nelson.

While speaking to a crowd in Miami Friday, the President said, "I hope he runs."

Nelson is the only statewide elected Democrat in Florida and has already said he plans to run for a fourth term.

Scott, who has to leave office because of term limits, has indicated that he is considering a Senate run in 2018 but has not made a commitment.

Scott endorsed Trump during last year's presidential campaign.
