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.
It’s coming down to the wire in a tight Florida Senate race which pits a Democratic incumbent against a Republican challenger.
Republican U.S. Representative Connie Mack IV’s Senate campaign is struggling in recent polling and has put in a call to the GOP bullpen to get some help, namely popular Florida Senator Marco Rubio.
Representative Connie Mack IV jumped into the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate late, but quickly became the nominee. But, he’s found a much tougher road in his general election matchup with incumbent Senator Bill Nelson.
Incumbent U.S. Senator Bill Nelson was not expecting a serious challenge in 2012. But new poll results from Quinnipiac University show Nelson will have a tough haul to re-election this year.
