Rick Scott was 'un-invited' to GOP leadership presser after announcing challenge to McConnell
Sen. Rick Scott normally attends the weekly Senate GOP leadership pressers as the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee
Florida GOP Sen. Rick Scott was "un-invited" to Tuesday's Senate Republican leadership press conference after announcing that he planned to challenge Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, according to Scott's office.
Scott, a member of the Senate GOP leadership team as chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, typically appears at the weekly news conference with McConnell and other GOP leaders.
Just the News asked Scott's office why he wasn't there and if he is worried he might lose his chairmanship after challenging McConnell.
"He was un-invited to today's presser," a spokesperson for Scott told Just the News.
Scott's office said McConnell’s team disinvited Scott. McConnell's office was not immediately available for comment.
“I don’t own this job. Anybody in the conference is certainly entitled to challenge me," McConnell said. "And I welcome the contest.”
