Weeks after Hurricane Irma barreled through Florida, Senator Bill Nelson (D) continues campaigning on the storm. Nelson, who will undoubtedly face Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) in the 2018 US Senate race, has been looking for just about anything he can find to chip away at Scott’s growing approval rating among Floridians.
First Nelson fundraised off Irma, now without mentioning his name, the elder senator is chiding Scott natural disaster preparedness planning.
More reports of long lines for emergency food assistance. Unacceptable. I've asked USDA for assistance. FL should have been better prepared.

This race between Nelson and Scott will get down right ugly.
