Sen. Rick Scott

Senator Rick Scott was elected in 2018 after serving two terms as the 45th Governor of Florida. He currently serves on the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, the Committee on Armed Services, the Committee on the Budget, and the Special Committee on Aging.

Senator Scott grew up in public housing in the Midwest as his adoptive father, a World War II veteran and truck driver, and his mother, a store clerk, struggled to financially support their family. After marrying his high school sweetheart, Ann, Senator Scott joined the Navy, where he served active duty as a radar man aboard the USS Glover. He used the G.I. Bill to attend the University of Missouri, Kansas City, and eventually opened his first business – a donut shop. He went on to run the world’s largest healthcare company and continues to fight every day so families across the state can have the same opportunities he had to live the American dream.
