Florida Gov. Rick Scott, R, does not want a post in President-elect Donald Trump's Cabinet, but he is interested in advising Mr. Trump on healthcare policy, according to an interview on Fox News

Gov. Scott visited Mr. Trump Thursday at Trump Tower in Manhattan to congratulate him on his win. Of their meeting Gov. Scott said, "It was fun to meet with my friend Donald Trump today."

When Fox News' Neil Cavuto pressed Gov. Scott on his interest in a Cabinet position, particularly one in HHS, he maintained that he likes his job as governor of Florida. 

However, Gov. Scott added, "I'm interested in doing whatever I can to help him rewrite Obamacare, redesign the government and help him work with the 33 Republican governors that have great ideas to help him be successful."

Mr. Trump's transition team issued an announcement Friday that Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., is the president-elect's pick for attorney general, Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., is his nominee for director of the CIA, and Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn is his choice for assistant to the president for national security affairs.
