Scott edging out Nelson in Florida’s U.S. Senate race

According to the latest Real Clear Politics average of polls, the latest poll has Scott leading Nelson by 6 points, but the average of all polls has him up by just 1.5 points.

Nelson has been trying to keep up with Scott, but Scott is pouring on the TV ads, and the upcoming Kavanaugh SCOTUS confirmation hearings would hurt Nelson.

Here is why.

Nelson has yet to meet with Judge Kavanaugh, leaving Scott and others to believe that Nelson has already made up his mind, and will vote against President Trump’s pick.

Kavanaugh has already stated that he stands by the Roe vs. Wade law, but Democrats like Nelson still appeared poised to obstruct his nomination.

This race is far from over, and millions more dollars are set to be spent.
