Bill Nelson, D-Fla., that has major implications for control of the Senate next year. "If you think that President Trump and Gov. Scott are playing election-year politics with drilling, you're right".

The time and location of the announcement was not made official until hours before it started, but four Democratic protesters made it in time to stand outside and wave signs stating, "No to Scott in U.S. Senate" and "Health care is not a luxury".

"We're going to make sure Washington works for us", Scott said in a brief appearance on Facebook Live from Orlando. His recent focus has been on the Everglades and harmful water releases from Lake Okeechobee to the coasts.

The 33-year-old was leaving Scott's office to work on his Senate campaign.

Analysts said the efforts show that the U.S. intelligence agencies are taking the lead for summit preparations. CNN reports that Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia, is also being considered as a potential meeting place.

Next week, Scott, who is term-limited in his current post, is expected to travel to Washington to raise money for his campaign, according to three Republicans familiar with his plans. A Quinnipiac University poll of Florida voters in late February found that Trump had only a 42 percent approval rating. But while history may also be on the Democrats' side - the party in power often loses Congressional seats after a President's first two years in office, even when that President is not as controversial as the current occupant - they actually face a very hard Senate map. And Democratic candidates to replace Scott as governor are already trying to outdo one another on who can be the most anti-Trump, banking on that as a winning argument for both the Democratic primary and the general election.

"We're not going to see a change in Washington if we don't have term limits on Congress", he said. "That is why workers like me will be spending our free time to help him win", she said.

Scott's candidacy was immediately bashed by several Democrats and progressive groups.

Although President Donald Trump won Florida in the 2016 presidential race, President Barack Obama won the state twice and twice it was Obama backlash that pushed Scott to narrowly win the governorship.

Analysts say a high turnout favors the opposition, especially Jobbik. "We love our country and we are fighting for our country". Who are the opposition parties? Gabor Vona of the nationalist Jobbik party urged his supporters not to become complacent.

"Scott's self-serving political brand, his administration's failures and a hostile political environment will all cripple his campaign", Myers said.

Florida has always been considered a swing state.

"You know, I didn't fit into Tallahassee because I didn't play the insider games", Scott said. Critics say one of his misses was environmental issues along with Medicaid. "I believe in jobs".

Scott found himself under intense pressure following the mass shooting at a Parkland, Florida school that left 17 dead on Valentine's Day.
