If the GOP cannot come up with a better candidate to run for Senate, Bill Nelson will die in that senate seat.

DeSantis always seems to have strong convictions - Until it comes to representing his district. Never seems to think, speak or act in the interests of his constituents, unless they align with his national goals.

Ron DeSantis for Governor. Navy JAG lawyer, 39 years old, served in Iraq,endorsed by trump. Just publicly said he would not of have voted for the Fl gun control bill and he would of immediately suspend Sheriff Israel
It's funny... but I'm starting to see some "anti" DeSantis ads on Fox News Channel! I forget the name of the "org" that's responsible for them, but I'll post that as soon as I see the ad again.
Probably from the Putnam campaign
I saw another ad this evening. It's the "National Liberty Federation" that's sponsoring the ads.

My father asked me what Scott is going to say about firearms. My guess he won't say anything and hopes no one asks, except Nelson. Then, he can engage Nelson directly on gun control without mentioning his own gun control legislation. Even then, it's dicey. Whatever Nelson says, I think Scott still has a record of more gun control passed.

Nelson is an a;;h;;e, but we know that and further, know what to expect. Scott is a crook, smiling in your face and, when we wonder what that pain in the middle of our collective backs is, then we know what Scott really is about. I am not voting for Senator at all, unless there is some obvious Libertarian on there for a protest vote. If Nelson gets back in, it's a known quantity and any "real" Republicans can plan accordingly.

Florida senate vote feels like the 2016 Presidential vote all over again. No matter who wins, we're gonna lose.

The problem with the Senate is that, beyond the individuals, you are effectively also voting as to which PARTY controls that part of Congress. And it is the Senate which confirms--or blocks--Presidential appointments, including the Supreme Court. So strategic voting for the Senate is more complicated. Even a bad Republican has value (so long as he isn't so bad that he switches parties in office, which has happened).

I would not be so confident in Scott in that regard. Otherwise, you are correct, considering also committee chairmanships.

And the committee memberships themselves, seeing that the party in power usually has a majority of members on each committee... hence the votes will usually go the way of that party... "usually...." [smilie=011.gif]

Why is that odd? Putnam's been positioning for the governorship for over eight years. And he has a lot of money to spend, being so wealthy himself.

If you want to win, you have to do more than shout at the people that agree with you.

So in effect you are in favor of an assault gun ban? Plan to turn in your guns accordingly. [smilie=014.gif]

Because Rick Scott would never trample on your firearm rights ](*,)

The election may show us his true colors, if someone presses him about it and if he thinks the majority wants an AWB. It would not surprise me at all if he came out with a non-committal answer on banning; and if he does, he will lose my vote as he has shown already that when push comes to shove he will cave. He may break a promise, but if he won't even promise then he will certainly cave, and I've no use for him.

No. But, I don't trust Scott not to help one along, whether specifically or by construction. As I said in another post, real republicans (I didn't say whether Plebs or Patrician) need to plan accordingly [whether the RINOS in the Congress, Scott would only be another one, surprise us].

I am not all that hot on Scott. However, I will vote for whomever is running against that worthless piece of crap Nelson.
