We can all agree Bill Nelson has been MIA on the campaign trail, but it’s really bad when one of the biggest democrat supporters in the state of Florida says, “I think Sen Nelson is in for a dog fight. I think he’s got to get busy. You cannot underestimate this Rick Scott. He is a methodical, Eveready bunny… who just never stops. He’s focused, and he’s got the money, and he’s got the message, and if I was Bill Nelson, I’d be worried.”
But he’s not the only one, Democratic State Representative Roy Hardemon said, “It was my pleasure to meet him [Nelson] in the past week but I've never seen him in our community.”
And according to the Tampa Bay Times Insider Poll, Florida Democrats have said, “"I'm very worried about Sen. Nelson. I think the Democrats need to reevaluate our candidate and Gwen Graham should jump to the Senate race immediately."
It looks to me like Florida Democrats are losing faith in their safe bet, half a century career politician. Nelson better get busy on the campaign trail. If not, he only has 172 more days until we can wish him the best in retirement.
