Former Republican Gov. Jeb Bush endorsed Rick Scott for his second gubernatorial term Tuesday, saying he campaigned to get Florida's economy back on track and "delivered on that promise."

The endorsement is the latest signal Florida's GOP establishment -- which Scott bucked during his upstart 2010 campaign -- is now rallying around his re-election, Tallahassee.com reported.

"Rick Scott demonstrated leadership when Florida needed it most," Bush said.

"While President Obama and Democrats in Congress are fixated on penalizing success, Governor Scott is pursuing policies to restore prosperity for more Floridians while prioritizing core state responsibilities, including increasing the state's investment in education."

Scott's Democratic challengers include former Republican Charlie Crist, who succeeded Bush as governor.

Scott praised Bush, who backed former state Attorney General Bill McCollum in the 2010 Republican gubernatorial primary.

"His time as governor built a strong foundation for Florida's future by making our education system more accountable and our state's economy more attractive to job creators," he said. "His positive vision for Florida continues to inspire us today as we work to cut taxes and get our economy back on track."
