    Meet Rick

    Rick Scott spent each day as Florida’s 45th governor working to turn around Florida’s economy and secure the state’s future as the best place for families and businesses to succeed. He grew up in public housing in the Midwest as his adoptive father, a World War II veteran and truck driver, and his mother, a store clerk, struggled to support their family financially. After marrying his high school sweetheart, Ann, Rick Scott joined the Navy and used the G.I. Bill to go to college and eventually open his first business – a donut shop so his mom could have a job. He ultimately ran the world’s largest healthcare company, with hundreds of thousands of employees from across the globe.

    Rick Scott knows firsthand that a good paying job is one of the most important things for a family, and following Florida’s economic collapse ten years ago, he decided to run for governor as a businessman with no political experience. While Governor, Rick Scott successfully championed more than $10 billion in tax cuts and reduced more than 5,200 burdensome regulations, allowing Florida businesses to create nearly 1.5 million new jobs and helping the unemployment rate drop to one of the historic lows, even lower than the national unemployment level. Under Rick Scott’s watch, significant investments were made into our education system, transportation infrastructure, and the environment – all while paying $9 billion in state debt. He also helped navigate Florida through some of the state’s most challenging times in recent history, including Hurricanes Hermine, Matthew, and Irma, as the state reached a 46-year crime low and maintained record tourism. As governor, Rick fought tirelessly for Florida families and job creators, and now, he is working to bring that fight to D.C. to secure Florida’s success for generations to come.
