Florida Governor Rick Scott announced yesterday that he’ll be running against Democratic Senator Bill Nelson for Nelson’s seat. Democrats have been on the offensive since then. But, Republican Florida Senator Marco Rubio took to twitter to voice his support for Governor Scott, but he’s also pointing out that he has a good working relationship with Senator Nelson and won’t be attacking him during the campaign season.

Talking to the Times/Herald about the race, Senator Rubio explained that “It has been the case historically that the party in power, particularly the one that has the White House lose seats. Whether times are different or not, we’ll see. The news cycles are very different now a days so the challenge for any Republican running in 2018 will be can you attract voters that may disapprove of the president but are willing to judge you for you and where you stand as opposed to their feelings for you.”
