The battle between U.S. Senator Bill Nelson and his Republican challenger Gov. Rick Scott isn’t official yet — Scott hasn’t formally filed to run. But it has already spawned opposition ads, websites and millions of dollars in spending by allied groups, all trying to get a head start on a campaign that could determine which party controls the Senate.
The looming campaign comes as Democrat Doug Jones’ victory over Republican Roy Moore in Alabama, even taking into account the impact of allegations against Moore of sexual misconduct, became the latest election this year showing momentum for Democrats, including winning the governor’s race in Virginia and lesser campaigns around the nation.
Such a national atmosphere, said Susan MacManus, professor of government and international affairs at the University of South Florida, should give Scott some pause.
“Any Republican running for office next year is in the process of gauging how to keep going — and he’s probably no different,” MacManus said.
