The Senate battle between term-limited Florida Governor Rick Scott and Senator Bill Nelson is set to continue as the most expensive and closely watched race leading up to the midterm elections as Governor Scott seeks to unseat the Democrat Senator.
Governor Scott has already released several advertisements in English and Spanish, attacking the Senator on being a “career politician” and on his negative influence on the economy by not voting in favor of the GOP tax bill.
One topic that both candidates have touched on is Puerto Rico and how the United States should move forward to help out after damages from Hurricane season, and a former Puerto Rico Governor has just endorsed Senator Nelson in his bid to maintain his seat.
Pedro Rossello, who served as Puerto Rico’s Governor from 1993 to 2000, is throwing his support behind Senator Nelson, calling him a “champion” of Puerto Rico for stepping up for the American territory after it was hit twice last year by hurricanes. In addition, he says that Senator Nelson is best equipped because “He has fought the good fight.”
Democratic Super PACs have thrown their support by released advertisements in his defense, but Democratic strategists are scared that Senator Nelson is not strong enough in this race against Governor Scott.
