Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) announced in a closed-door Tuesday lunch with Republican senators that he will challenge Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for GOP Senate leader.
“Republican voters expect and deserve to know our plan to promote and advance conservative values… That is why I am running to be Republican Leader,” Scott wrote in a letter released after the meeting.
“Like each of you, I am deeply disappointed by the results of the recent election,” Scott continued. “Despite what the armchair quarterbacks on TV will tell you, there is no one person responsible for our party’s performance across the country.”
“If you simply want to stick with the status quo, don’t vote for me,” Scott added.
