Cleveland, Ohio — Florida Governor Rick Scott isn't happy with Ted Cruz's speech at the Republican National Convention last night.

Cruz was booed by delegates for failing to endorse Trump during his speech at the convention Wednesday night:

Scott told Independent Journal Review that if you're not with the majority, you're against it:

“I think it's very important to unify the party. There are only two people on the ballot — Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. If you're not supporting Donald Trump, you're helping Hillary Clinton.”

Scott endorsed Donald Trump following the Florida Republican primary. Trump was handed a huge victory in the Sunshine state, despite the fact that a fellow Floridian, Senator Marco Rubio, was also running.

On Wednesday, Rubio endorsed Trump in a video played at the convention, a move that could help him in his recently-announced Senate reelection campaign.

Scott also suggested that what's important for the party is unity:

“What I care about is unification of the party. I'm going to do everything I can to make sure Donald Trump wins in November and the way you do that is to make sure you support him.”

The Tampa Bay Times suggested that following the end of his second term as governor in 2018, Scott may run for the U.S. Senate.
