President Donald Trump on Monday endorsed two Florida Republicans, Gov. Rick Scott and Rep. Ron DeSantis, in their respective campaigns for U.S. Senate and governor.

"Rick Scott of Florida is doing a fantastic job as Governor," Trump tweeted Monday morning. "Jobs are pouring into the State and its economic health is better than ever before. He is strong on Crime, Borders, and loves our Military and Vets. Vote for Rick on Tuesday!"

Scott’s victory in the GOP primary is a "foregone conclusion," according to the Tampa Bay Times, which notes that the governor faces a primary opponent who is on the ballot in multiple states and hasn’t run a visible campaign in Florida. After the primary, Scott will face Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson in the general election.

"Congressman Ron DeSantis is a special person who has done an incredible job," Trump tweeted on Monday. "He is running in Tuesdays Primary for Governor of Florida….Strong on Crime, Borders and wants Low Taxes. He will be a great Governor and has my full and total Endorsement!"

DeSantis holds a strong lead over his GOP opponent, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam. Trump initially tweeted his support for DeSantis before the congressman entered the race in January.
