Representative Connie Mack IV
When election season began, many Republicans pointed to Florida Senator Bill Nelson as a possible seat that could flip to the GOP in 2012. But that didn’t turn out to be the case as the Associated Press has called the race and declared Senator Bill Nelson the winner of another six-year term in the Senate.
For Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to capture the presidency, winning the Sunshine State will be crucial. But the latest polling from Fox News is not painting a positive picture for Romney.
Florida Senator Bill Nelson is underwater when it comes to his approval rating, but he’s still ahead by seven points over Republican challenger Representative Connie Mack, IV, according to the later Public Policy Polling poll.
One day after a Quinnipiac University poll showed Mitt Romney leading in the Sunshine State; a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll found President Barack Obama leading in Florida by five points, outside the margin of error.
