Jeri Bustamante, Aide to Gov. Scott, Dies in an Islamorada Boat Accident

Rick Scott and Anne Scott

Although President Donald Trump won Florida in the 2016 presidential race, President Barack Obama won the state twice and twice it was Obama backlash that pushed Scott to narrowly win the governorship. "I know he's asked me to get into the race". Nelson, a former astronaut, has widespread support in the Democratic Party and has easily won his past senate terms. Both political parties share some of the blame.

"We have to all acknowledge that Washington's a disaster".

"We don't need any more talkers in Washington, we need some doers", he said. A Quinnipiac University poll of Florida voters in late February found that Trump had only a 42 percent approval rating. The contest among Mr. Nelson and Mr. Scott alone is expected to cost a lot more than $100 million as well as perhaps as much as $150 million, mostly to buy television advertisements over Flo-Rida's10 broadcast networking markets.

Scott says his investments in Florida's environment have been historic.

"What I focused on when I got elected [governor] was getting 700,000 jobs over seven years and changing the direction of the state", he told Politico Sunday. The GOP holds a narrow 51-to-49 majority in the chamber. Bill Nelson at an event for ODC Construction in Orlando.

"It's going to be clearly a set of contrasts on so many issues, from the environment to sea level rise to oil drilling off the coast, to the expansion of Medicaid in Florida", Nelson told reporters.

Rick Scott formally announced Monday he will run against U.S. Sen.

Scott is viewed as the only opponent with the ability to seriously challenge Nelson, with his willingness to spend tens of millions of dollars on his campaigns, which isn't out of the ordinary considering that Florida is known for its television advertising.

Rick Scott announced on Monday that he'll challenge Sen.

Democratic political strategist Steve Schale predicted the race would be close and that Trump's popularity could play a role.

Mr. Scott, a multimillionaire, spent almost $100 million on his gubernatorial bids, including more than $60 million of his own money, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Scott last month publicly broke with his longtime allies at the National Rifle Association to sign new gun regulations into law.

Critics say the state would be adding jobs regardless of Scott's policies, and they deride his economic record as one of low-wage job growth. The Republicans said Scott is expected to be in Washington on April 19. That members of the United States Senate do not have term limits has been a point of contention before, and those who want change across the board in D.C. have suggested that imposing such limits will decrease worries about "politics as usual".
