U.S. Sen. Rick Scott continues to express hope that former President Donald Trump won’t engage against Senate incumbents in 2022. Scott made the comments Tuesday on Fox News Radio’s “Brian Kilmeade Show.”
“What I’ve suggested to him is to let the citizens of that state pick their primary winner,” Scott said. “And then help those that win that he believes in.”
“I’ve suggested that he support the incumbents, all the incumbents,” Scott said, before admitting it may have done no good. “When I give advice to somebody, I don’t necessarily expect them to take it,” Scott allowed.

Last month Scott presented Trump with the GOP’s “inaugural Champion For Freedom Award.” Critics say the award was invented in the hopes of flattering Trump so he’d stop attacking incumbents. Two days after getting the award, Trump called Mitch McConnell a “dumb son of a bitch.”
