Bill Nelson’s Senate Seat

4-27SaveASeatFL.jpg

Your DGB for this weekend is to help re-elect Democrat Bill Nelson to his senate seat in Florida.

DGB just wrapped up our weekend series on flippable red senate seats. Now we begin our effort to retain the incumbent blue seats in jeopardy, one Friday at a time.

Florida senator (and former astronaut) Bill Nelson is mostly known for not being Marco Rubio, but he’s actually the senior senator, first elected in 2000, and incumbents from the opposition party in midterms are difficult to beat. However, Nelson’s challenger is super rich and self-funded Governor Rick Scott, which tips this race into worry territory. Scott is currently walking back his affection for Trump in preparation for the race.
