Florida Governor Rick Scott has called on voters to reject the president-elect Donald Trump.
Scott made the comments during a news conference on Thursday, where he announced the results of a poll showing that he has a slight lead over Trump in the state.
“Florida has voted twice for the last four presidents, both times for President-elect Trump.
And he won Florida twice,” Scott said.
We need to tell him, ‘No, you’re not going to get us 270 electoral college votes. “
We need to stop him.
We need to tell him, ‘No, you’re not going to get us 270 electoral college votes.
You’re not getting us the votes we need to win the presidency.'”
Florida is one of only two states where a candidate can win the popular vote but not the Electoral College.
Trump won Florida by more than 270 votes, but the state’s electoral votes are split equally between the two candidates.
Scott’s remarks come after Trump won by about 5,000 votes in a Florida-specific election on Monday, the same day he claimed that millions of people voted illegally in the presidential election.
Scott said he believes that a new poll from Emerson College shows Trump has a two-to-one lead in Florida.
“If we had all the votes and all the money and all of the resources, he could have won Florida in the last election, but we had less money, we had fewer resources, and we didn’t have the same turnout that we did last time,” Scott told reporters.
Scott also reiterated his call for Trump to leave the United States if he wins the White House.
“I don’t think he should be in this country,” Scott, a Republican, said.
The governor is running in the Democratic primary against Republican incumbent Republican Governor Rick Miller, who is not seeking reelection.
Scott is a former presidential candidate who won the Florida Democratic primary in 2016.
Miller is seeking his second term in office.
The poll showed that Trump is leading the Florida race by nearly two to one, with 51 percent of voters supporting the billionaire businessman while 42 percent backed Democrat Hillary Clinton.
A full 71 percent of Florida voters are Democrats, while 31 percent are Republicans.
Florida is a key swing state, with Trump narrowly trailing Clinton in the swing state of Florida by about 1 percentage point.
On Friday, Trump will hold a rally in Pensacola, Florida.
The rally will feature more than 20,000 people and is scheduled for 7 p.m.
EST (2230 GMT).
