A spokeswoman for Scott said Wednesday that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and outgoing Texas Gov. Rick Perry will both attend Scott's swearing-in ceremony Tuesday.

Scott won a narrow re-election victory for a second term against Democrat Charlie Crist in November

Florida is a key presidential swing state. It's also the home of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who announced plans to "actively explore" a White House run earlier this month.

Both Christie and Perry appeared with Scott during the campaign.

The pair will also both attend the Iowa Freedom Summit on Jan. 24 in Des Moines.
