I have not followed the Florida Senate race, and the attempt to unseat Bill Nelson, very closely.

But I did post a couple of general items about it last Fall:

My focus has been elsewhere, but this is unexpected and not good news:

Incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson now posts double-digit leads over all three of his Republican challengers in Florida’s 2012 U.S. Senate race.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Florida Voters shows Nelson with 47% support to 36% for Congressman Connie Mack, his leading GOP opponent….

For Mack, who has been criticized in recent weeks for running a tepid campaign, the numbers are a sizable setback from early March when he was slightly ahead. In February, the two were tied.

Nelson, elected to the Senate in 2000 to fill the seat vacated by Mack’s father, posts a 44% to 30% lead over former Senator George LeMieux…. Businessman Mike McCalister trails Nelson 48% to 29%.

What is going on in Florida?  Can it be salvaged?
