Florida Republican Gov. Rick Scott will announce plans Monday to run for the Senate against Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, setting up what could be one of the most expensive and highly-watched races in the country. The Associated Press reported Monday that Scott will formally make the announcement during a morning event in Orlando where he will call Washington "horribly dysfunctional," rail against "career politicians" and call for term limits for members of Congress. Scott was first elected governor in 2010 but he cannot run again because of term limits. Nelson is the only statewide elected Democrat and was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 2000. In 1986, Nelson famously went through NASA training and spent six days orbiting Earth aboard the space shuttle Columbia.

President Trump has urged Scott to seek the seat, including during public events in Florida. During a tour of storm damage during Hurricane Irma in September, the president told reporters: "I hope this man right here, Rick Scott, runs for the Senate."

Rick Scott would make a nasty Senator. Learn from Trump. Say no to sociopaths.

THe truth, he will likely win. Everyone knows his name, he didn't get found in bed with a dead girl or live boy, and he is a Republican. The difference between Democratic voters and Republican voters? Republicans show up to vote.

The truth is that Scott has 100s of millions of dollars of his own and his wife's money with which to buy this election... and rwingers approve his message.

#8 | Posted by Corky Lame argument, Beyond this guy being rich and Republican you have not proven any reason that he is worthy of your rating his run for the Senate as rotten. Of course, I am giving you the benefit of the doubt that you have evidence or reason behind your judgement.

He's as rotten as they come...

Rick Scott "oversaw the largest Medicare fraud in the nation's history."

then there's this....

Florida's governor may have broken the state's famously liberal public records laws by deleting several pleas for help from a nursing home where 11 died due to a power outage after Hurricane Irma.

I guess the "D"s will have to have to put someone more appealing on the ballot. I am not going to hold my breath.

Don't count out Bill Nelson. Very well liked and respected long time Senator.

"An average of a University of North Florida and Quinnipiac University poll gives Nelson a 47% to 42% advantage. "
