Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) on Thursday brushed off rumors of Ivanka Trump launching a primary challenge to Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) in the aftermath of the Trump presidency, according to a Capitol Hill pool report.

Speaking to reporters at the Senate subway on Thursday, Scott claimed that “nobody’s said anything to me about that” when asked about the former President’s daughter running against Rubio, who is up for re-election next year.

Scott repeatedly insisted that he is “supporting incumbents” and that no one has talked to him about potential challengers to Rubio’s re-election.

“I’m supporting incumbents,” Scott said.
