Rick Scott speaks up on Romney's win

Gov. Rick Scott breaks his silence on the Florida primary. Here's his statement:

"Congratulations to Governor Mitt Romney on his victory tonight.  Clearly, his message of restoring economic prosperity to our nation has resonated with voters. Floridians, like voters around the country, are focused on jobs and know that we need a strong federal partner who is committed to lowering taxes, cutting regulations, and allowing companies to out-compete their global competitors.
"Floridians have already played a critical role in choosing our party’s nominee, and I look forward to welcoming our nominee back to our great state for the Republican National Convention in Tampa this summer."
