Florida GOP governor candidate Rick Scott got the seal of approval Monday from Miami’s three Republican Cuban-American members of Congress, according to a report on miamiherald.com. The endorsements from Illeana Ros-Lehtinen, Mario Diaz-Balart and Lincoln Diaz-Balart came even though the three don’t agree with Rick Scott, Diaz-Balart, Ros-Lehtinen, Bill McCollum, Florida governorScott on immigration. The three had supported Bill McCollum in the Republican governor primary.

Scott has said he supports bringing an Arizona type immigration law to Florida, something his Democratic opponent Alex Sink opposes. Several new polls released on Monday show that Scott has an edge of Sink with voters.

"Since we disagree with both candidates on immigration, on what do we have to focus on?" Lincoln Diaz-Balart asked. "I think it's, ‘Who's prepared to create jobs from day one?'"

Quipped Ros-Lehtinen: "I can't even get my own family to agree with me on most of my issues."
