Donald Trump to meet with Florida Gov. Rick Scott

Story highlights

  • The meeting comes as speculation mounts about who Trump might choose as his vice president
  • Scott has previously said he was not interested in being Trump's running mate

Washington (CNN)Donald Trump is set to meet with Florida Gov. Rick Scott at Trump Tower on Monday.

The Scott and Trump camps on Thursday confirmed the meeting, which comes as speculation mounts about who Trump might choose as his running mate. But a Scott aide said the sitdown would center on Trump's general election campaign in Florida, a perennial battleground state.
    "Governor Scott looks forward to meeting with Mr. Trump to discuss his campaigns in Florida and how he thinks Mr. Trump will have a big win in the state in November," Melissa Stone said.
    The meeting was first reported by The Washington Post.
    Scott endorsed the GOP presumptive nominee in March, but has previously said he was not interested in being Trump's running mate.
    Trump has narrowed his potential running mates to a "very small" list, his top aide said Sunday.
    In an appearance on "Fox News Sunday," Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski -- who is leading the vice-presidential search process -- said the vetting team has "started to shrink down that pool."
