Scarborough and a few others on the ballot are slated to speak at the convention as well as Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.). 

Scarborough was asked last month on “The View” if he wants to run for president.

“No, no,” Scarborough said. His co-host Mika Brzezinski interrupted and asked, “Do others want him to run? Yes.” Audience members at the talk show burst out with applause.

On the conservative “The Hugh Hewitt Show” that same day, Scarborough didn't rule out a 2016 run.

“No, I’m not going — I won’t rule anything out. I’ve always said, and I’ve always been very open about the fact that the greatest job I ever had, and the greatest honor I ever had, was being in the House of Representatives,” he said. “But no, I’ve always said I wanted to get back in. It’s just a matter of timing, and we’ll see when it happens.”
