Florida Gov. Rick Scott endorsed Donald Trump, the day after the billionaire businessman won the state's winner-take-all primary.


Scott took to Facebook on Wednesday to endorse Trump, who won Florida's 99 delegates Tuesday with 46 percent of the vote.


"With his victories yesterday, I believe it is now time for Republicans to accept and respect the will of the voters and coalesce behind Donald Trump. This has been a hard-fought primary, with an outstanding roster of excellent candidates, including two of Florida's favorite sons, and several Republican governors who are close friends of mine," the Republican governor wrote. "But the voters are speaking clearly — they want a businessman outsider who will dramatically shake up the status quo in Washington."


Scott also called for Republicans to "come together" and prepare to "win the general election in November."




"If we spend another four months tearing each other apart, we will damage our ability to win in November. It's time for an end to the Republican-on-Republican violence. It's time for us to begin coming together, we've had a vigorous primary, now let's get serious about winning in November," Scott concluded.



Scott wrote an op-ed in early January all but endorsing Trump. However, earlier this month he said he would not endorse anyone until after Florida's March 15 primary.


There has been speculation that Scott is vying to be Trump's vice presidential nominee.
