Bill Nelson in an election that could be one of the most expensive and highly-watched races in the nation.
"Some say as governor, I have never fit in or played by the political rules in Tallahassee", Scott said in a video released by his campaign.
Blitzer pressed him again, asking him to name one issue where he sees a major difference.
"People are flocking to Florida because this is where you can live the dream of this country", Scott said.
He also cited the booming space industry and protected Medicare and Social Security programs in Florida.
Scott, a Republican, announced Monday his intentions to unseat Democratic Sen.
President Trump has urged Scott to seek the seat, including during public events in Florida. Scott is a multi-millionaire businessman whose popularity has climbed during his final months in office, despite his sometimes rocky relationship with the Republican-controlled Florida Legislature.
Myers said Scott's actions as governor have made him $46 million richer. "I would welcome (Scott's) inclusion in the race". "That's not what I call jobs", said Lyte-Johnson, the president of the Democratic Women's Club of West Orange County. "This concept of career politicians has got to stop".
The race could even determine the balance of power in Washington, but Scott faces a tough road ahead.
"What I focused on when I got elected [governor] was getting 700,000 jobs over seven years and changing the direction of the state", he told Politico Sunday.

During a tour of storm damage during Hurricane Irma in September, the president told reporters: "I hope this man right here, Rick Scott, runs for the Senate".
"Rick Scott is going to need unprecedented campaign cash to try to cover up for all his self-serving work as Governor but every campaign dollar he spends just reminds voters how he's taken advantage of his job to enrich himself and his donors".
Nelson had a 46 percent to 42 percent edge over Scott in the Senate contest, according to the poll.

Democrats swiftly laid out their argument against Scott. The National Republican Senatorial Committee launched a digital ad Monday that goes after Democrats such as Nelson who voted against the tax bill approved by Congress late a year ago.
Scott, who spent more than $75m of his own money on his first campaign for governor, in 2010, will have the ability to spend his own funds.
