"Rick, are you running?"

President Donald Trump looked across the stage in Miami at Gov. Rick Scott, who just smiled, unshakable as usual.

Scott hasn't announced he's running against Sen. Bill Nelson but it's obvious he will and the playful president called him out on Friday.

"And I also want to thank my good friend, and just a man who was of tremendous support in the state of Florida, for being with us -- Governor Rick Scott," Trump said to applause. "Great job. He’s doing a great job. I hope he runs for the Senate. I know I’m not supposed to say that. I hope he runs for the Senate. Rick, are you running? I don’t know. Marco, let’s go, come on. We got to get him to -- I hope he runs for the Senate."
