Florida Gov. Rick Scott will meet with Donald Trump on Monday at the New York businessman’s Manhattan office, according to an email from an aide to the Florida governor.

“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, aide to Scott, wrote.

Scott endorsed Trump in March, a day after his victory in the Sunshine State’s primary, which prompted the departure of Sen. Marco Rubio from the race.

The governor could be a potential running mate to Trump, political analysts say. The New York businessman has kept his cards close to his vest regarding who he is considering for vice president. But Trump has repeatedly said he would like a partner who has legislative or governing experience.
