Fla. Governor Rick Scott Announces Senate Run Against Senator Bill Nelson

Both political parties share some of the blame.

Politico reported that the majority of "polls taken of the Scott-Nelson race show a tie, with many giving an inside-the-error-margin edge to Nelson". It also offers a test of whether a tight alliance with Trump provides more help or harm in the current political environment.

The lame-duck governor said he may challenge Nelson right after President Donald Trump was elected.

During his campaign speech, Scott cited the turnaround in Florida's economy during his time in office.

Scott is leaving office due to term limits. They've tried a lot of things - it just didn't work.

Scott is not anticipated to run against another major GOP Candidate. While Trump carried the state, Democrats and even some Republican believe that his closeness to Trump could be a liability if the president's approval numbers don't improve.

Bustamante, with Scott and liberal activist Cara Jennings, made national news in April 2016 in a downtown Gainesville Starbucks when Jennings unleashed a loud and very public dressing-down of the governor for "cutting Medicaid" and depriving her of Obamacare.

Scott bluntly said that he is running on "a jobs platform". I'm going to aggressively travel the state and tell people why they need to support me. The Nelson-Scott race will be expensive - and nasty. More than 200,000 Puerto Ricans have come to Florida since the hurricane.

"I'm a heavy Trump supporter", said Francis Werner, who also quickly voiced support for Scott. "I would welcome (Scott's) inclusion in the race".

"I've always run every race like there's no tomorrow - regardless of my opponent", Nelson said in a statement. "I'm sick of it", Scott said. "Anyone who ever spent time with Jeri knows what a terrific and selfless person she was". Last year, he collaborated with Sen. Bill Nelson at an event for ODC Construction in Orlando.

Before he gets a chance to set Washington right, he's going to spend an bad lot of money, and so will his opponent.

For Scott, it will be his third election in his political career.

Scott made the announcement Monday in Orlando, eight years to the day after he first announced he was running for governor.
