    Former Sen. George LeMieux (R-Fla.) announced Tuesday that he is jumping into the race against Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson (Fla.).

    "I'm in because the country and our government is [at] risk of failure," LeMieux told The St. Petersburg Times.


    LeMieux becomes the second Republican to officially enter the primary field — Florida state Senate President Mike Haridopolos has declared his candidacy. Former state Rep. Adam Hasner is also expected to run.

    LeMieux could give Nelson, whom national Republicans have targeted for defeat, a tough challenge.
