‘Who knows?’ Rick Scott stays vague on Ron DeSantis, Mitch McConnell political futures

U.S. Sen. Rick Scott was asked about the political futures of two fellow Republicans Friday on a Mississippi radio show, and both times he offered the same answer: “Who knows?”

Scott was asked about the White House chances of his successor as Florida Governor, Ron DeSantis, and then was asked about whether Mitch McConnell would retain leadership of the Senate Republican caucus, when he offered the pair of unenthusiastic answers.

Asked about the seeming collision course DeSantis and Donald Trump are set on ahead of the 2024 Republican Presidential Primary, Scott punted, saying he expected crowded fields on “both the Democratic and Republican sides.”
