    TAMPA -- A possible explanation for Democratic Florida Senator Bill Nelson's recent dramatic downward slide in polls is a series of PACs that are spending freely on negative ads against him.

    In the space of two months, Nelson, seeking a third Senate term, has gone from 10 points ahead of conservative Republican challenger Connie Mack IV to 10 points behind, at least as measured by Rasmussen. During this time Congressman Mack, son of former Florida U.S. Senator Connie Mack III, has done little or nothing to account for the movement. (Mack faces two opponents in the Aug. 14 primary, but is prohibitively ahead of both in the polls.)

    I hope the Republicans take the Senate.

    I don't think so. Florida is heavy on seniors. Seniors know obama stole half a trillion dollars from medicare and gave them 250 bucks to help buy drugs in return. Nelson voted for that shit. It's a done deal I think.

    Nelson needs to go. He is MY Senator and he doesn't have my support.

    The SOB voted for ObamaCare.

    annnnd;

    Gator Aid: Sen. Bill Nelson inserted a grandfather clause that would protect Florida's Medicare Advantage program, a $2.5-$3 billion buyoff.

    You raise the point I first thought of when I read this.

    It seems Obama has held Romney in check with negative adds.

    And if Obama wins, the acrimony at the Federal Level is going to be as thick a London fog.

    I don't like negative adds.

    I wish Rove and Co. would not attack Obama with them.
