“It feels great,” Scott said Thursday night at a gathering of Ohio Republicans in Washington. “Seeing it all the way until the end, it’s sweet success. He’s going to do an amazing job as president.”

Scott is also facing questions from an Ohio lawyer challenging his legitimacy on Kettering City Council after he became an alternate delegate for Trump.

The Chandra Law Firm, on behalf of Kettering resident John J. Murphy, argues that by serving as an elector he violated the Kettering City Charter provision against council members holding two offices.

Scott said the firm has made several public records requests about the matter, but maintains he did not violate the law.
