Senator Rick Scott March 2, 2024


This week, I continued my “Farmers for Rick Scott” tour at Parkesdale Farm Plant City, where I received major endorsements for my re-election campaign from Florida’s agriculture and state leaders, including Florida Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services Wilton Simpson. It’s an honor to have his endorsement. Wilton is a great friend who I have had the pleasure to work with since my time in the governor’s office. We have gotten so much done over the years, but there is still a lot to do. Wilton and I will continue to work around the clock to ensure Florida’s farmers, growers and ranchers have the resources they need to succeed.

Recently, our great farmers have faced hardships like citrus greening and natural disasters. That’s why I’m fighting up in Washington to hold Joe Biden and Democrats accountable for using Florida farmers as a political tool to advance their radical agenda. We need to pass my Block Grant Assistance Act that would provide much needed relief for Florida’s farmers, ranchers, and growers. Florida farmers are some of the toughest people I know, and I will not stop fighting for them. 

I’m grateful for the support of these great Floridians and for your continued support. Together, we’re going to defeat Joe Biden and radical Democrats in November. This election is the most important election of our lifetime. We need to turn things around before it’s too late. And things will only get much worse if Democrats keep control of the Senate and Joe Biden has four more years to destroy our country. But I’m optimistic that a Republican Senate, with President Trump back in the White House, can quickly reverse the damage Joe Biden and Democrats are doing to our great country.
