PolitiFact Florida checks Gov. Rick Scott's primary math

Gov. Rick Scott rallied Republican activists at Florida's Presidency 5 straw poll with an argument for the state's supremacy in choosing the party's presidential contender.

"None will have a greater impact on the selection of the nominee than our own primary in the Sunshine State," Scott told a crowd of 3,500 on Saturday.

While other primaries or caucuses might be earlier, he said, Florida's population and diversity set it apart.

"At nearly 19 million people, the population of Florida is larger than all the earlier primary and caucus states combined," he said.
