by Javier ManjarresThe 2012 U.S. Senate race in Florida is beginning to come into sharper focus in the wake of Congressman Connie Mack’s announcement last week which removed himself from consideration in the race. We’ve also learned that another potential ‘wild card” candidate, Nick Loeb, will not be running as well- a close source to Loeb has told the Shark Tank. The field as it now stands includes the already announced Mike Haridopolos and Mike McCalister as well as potential candidates George LeMieux and Former House Majority Leader Adam Hasner. While Hasner and LeMieux have yet to formally announce, both appear to be very close to making their candidacies official.
Who do you think is the strongest Republican candidate out there (announced or otherwise) that can defeat incumbent Senator Bill Nelson? Weigh in on the poll below, and tell us why you think they’re the best positioned to become Florida’s next Senator.
