WASHINGTON - Gov. Rick Scott can't get enough of this town.

As the legislative sessions enters day two, the governor is on his way to Washington for a meeting with Rep. Neal Dunn, R-Panama City, and House Speaker Paul Ryan, according to his schedule.

Scott had made repeated trips in recent months, all around the Obamacare repeal. But it's obvious, too, that he's signaling interest to voters that he wants to be a player here.
