Gov. Rick Scott Announces Bid to Unseat Florida's Democratic Senator

11 Апреля 2018

Blitzer pressed him again, asking him to name one issue where he sees a major difference.

He also cited the booming space industry and protected Medicare and Social Security programs in Florida.

Rick Scott launched his long-anticipated challenge to Democratic Sen.

Still, Scott's ability to fund his campaign with the stroke of a check also gives him an advantage that's had Nelson admittedly running "scared as a jackrabbit" for the previous year.

Some environmental groups are speaking out against Gov. Rick Scott's U.S. Senate bid. Everyone assumed it'd be about the Senate race.

Four Scott opponents stood outside Monday's event, with motorists occasionally tooting horns or giving thumbs up as they drove past.

"Almost 1.5 million jobs, $10 billion in tax reductions, over $9 billion in debt reductions in this state", Scott said.

Scott made no mention of President Donald Trump, although Scott has been a consistent supporter of the president. "This concept of career politicians has got to stop".

While most everything about the upcoming race is up in the air at this point, Nova Southeastern's Charles Zelden says two things are for sure. But Rick Scott's Florida invests half the national average, leading to underfunded and overworked agencies unable to meet the demands of today, let alone plan for the challenges of tomorrow.

There's "a lot of old, exhausted thinking up there", Scott said. "The road to growing the senate GOP majority runs through Florida".

Rick Scott gives a speech in July 2014.

The Governor's office says Bustamante had also served as Press Secretary for Lt. Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera during the reelection campaign and assisted with Hispanic media outreach. It is usually quite hard to unseat an incumbent-especially one who has been around for longer than one term-but Scott's name recognition (even greater than Nelson's per a recent poll) changes the dynamic considerably. The National Republican Senatorial Committee launched a digital ad Monday that goes after Democrats such as Nelson who voted against the tax bill approved by Congress late past year.

Despite serving eight years as Florida's chief executive, Scott is painting himself as the outsider candidate - like Trump, a distinction still popular among Republican activists. Slightly more Florida voters disapprove of Trump's job so far as president (44 percent) than approve (41 percent), according to a Florida Atlantic University Poll in February.

After Scott's announcement, the non-partisan Cook Political report moved the race to "toss up", further putting the Democrats on the defensive.
