Rick scott just served eight years as the Governor of Florida. He is a Trump supporter, but more than that, he took Florida from a failing economy to the 15th largest economy in the world, ranking above many nations. His jobs program has totally turned Florida around and now we are the envy of all the states economically. People now are moving to Florida in droves.  He will vote for jobs in the Senate, be supportive of President Trump's agenda and will do the same as a Senator as he did as a governor.

Governor Scott grew up in a family that struggled financially and they lived in public housing.  Life was rough for the Governor.  He married his high school sweetheart, Ann.  They have two daughters and six grandsons.

He served in the navy and with the GI bill, he was able to attend college and law school. While going to college and working full time in a grocery store, Ann and Governor Scott bought two doughnut shops for his mother to manage.  This was his first venture into the business world.

He got a degree in business administration and also a law degree.  After law school, he worked in Dallas' largest law firm.  Ann and Governor Scott started Columbia Hospital Corporation with their life savings of $125,000.  He started Conservatives for Patient's Rights, which advocated for free market principles of choice, competition, accountability and personal responsibility in health care. Governor Scott wanted to prevent further encroachment of government on the rights of patients.

When Governor Scott left Columbia, it was one of the most admired companies in America. It had grown to 340 hospitals, 130 surgery centers, 550 home health centers in 37 states and two countries. Columbia employed 285,000 people making it the 7th largest US employer and the 12th largest worldwide.

Governor Scorr is a man of faith and attends Naples Community Church when he is not in Tallahassee.


Francis Rooney is a supporter of President Trump and he operates much in the same way...promises made...promises kept. When Francis ran for Congress two years ago, he promised to make Florida's water quality a priority. He has kept that promise. He has managed to secure millions of dollars for the Everglades, and now, while Florida has a water emergency, he has petitioned the President for more immediate money and has asked the President to put Florida in a state of emergency. He has also petitioned seven national agencies so they would get involved in Florida's immediate need. The problem has not been solved yet...it takes time, but no one has done more to improve our water quality than Francis Rooney. 

Below are the agencies that Francis has contacted to get involved:
  • Department of Agriculture
  • Department of Energy
  • Department of Health and Human Services
  • Department of the Interior
  • National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
  • US Army Corp of Engineers
  • US Environmental Protection Agency

Francis resides in Southwest Florida with his wife Kathleen and has three children and two grandchildren. He is a life long conservative who never held office until he ran for congress in 2016.
He built a successful business as chairman of Rooney Holdings, Inc. for more than 30 years. The firm engages in building and construction management and works in oil and gas, manufacturing, aviation, transportation, retail and environmental industries.

He was an Ambassador to the Holy See.
