Florida Gov. Rick Scott is throwing his support behind Donald Trump. 

In a post on his Facebook page, Scott called on Republicans to "come together." He wrote, "The voters are speaking clearly — they want a businessman outsider who will dramatically shake up the status quo in Washington."

Scott's statement came with a warning that if the GOP doesn't come together on someone soon, it risks losing the election in November. 

Scott had said he would hold off on endorsing a candidate until after the Florida primary. 

His announcement came just a day after Trump won in Florida, beating Marco Rubio by almost 20 points in his home state. The win secured Trump 99 more delegates.
