Aka Rep. Connie Mack (R-Florida) is going to run against Bill Nelson in the 2012 Florida Senate race:

U.S. Rep. Connie Mack unexpectedly signaled late Wednesday that he will enter the Republican primary for U.S. Senate, apparently convinced other candidates cannot defeat Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson….

The other candidates are former state House Majority Leader Adam Hasner; former Charlie Crist adviser and interim U.S. Sen. George LeMieux; retired Army colonel Mike McCalister; and former Ruth’s Chris Steak House CEO Craig Miller.

Can he win the nomination and defeat Neslon?  How does he stack up against the other Republican candidates?  Calling all Florida readers, or those who know about Florida.

Considering this as a possible focus race, so tell me about Cor­nelius Har­vey McGillicuddy IV.
