…but he sure does seem to like people talking about whether he’ll run.

Patronis was appointed state Chief Financial Officer by Gov. Rick Scott to complete the rest of Jeff Atwater‘s last term. Atwater stepped down early to become CFO of Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton.

Patronis’ political committee, Treasure Florida, sent an “in case you missed it” email to supporters this week, highlighting a news story that Scott would back Patronis if he runs in 2018.

“If he is going to run … if he runs, I’m going to be a big supporter,” Scott said after an event in Tampa last Friday. “I’ll do everything I can to make sure he wins.”

The committee is chaired by Tim Cerio, Scott’s former general counsel and now ‘of counsel‘ to GrayRobinson’s Tallahassee office. He also is one of Scott’s appointments to the Florida Constitution Revision Commission.

At the bottom of the email was, of course, a “Contribute Online” button.
