When Joe Biden became Vice President, Bill Nelson instantly moved into 1st place as the dumbest elected official in the U.S. Senate.

Best news I’ve heard so far & my family will not be voting for him. I’ll be glad when his smug face is no longer on my tv here in Florida.

Not been close....heck Nelson was a NASA astronaut .... His problem besides being a liberal, is he is old and senile and needs to be put out to pasture....

Their are several senators who truly are dumber than a box of rocks....Patty what’s her name, stabatoe is another....

NO Way. Patty Murray is still a Senator from Washington.

Mack is no prize but I’d vote for a monkey ***king a football before I’d vote for the idiot Nelson.

And that is with La Raza RINO Rubio not going after Spaceman Bill...

The ads against Connie Mack IV are really nasty. Of course, mentioning “Mack once ran Hooters” probably got Mack another 10-15% from the Joe Six Pack crowd

Taking out Nelson would be a huge GOP win, because he usually draws a good number of liberal GOP voters

I have been watching this race for a year now. Heard em’ all and really not thrilled over Connie Mack, quite frankly he is not a conservative in my view. But alas, as in the Presidential race.... pet rock will get my vote. Can’t stand Bill Nelson, his time in the Senate is OVER! He has been a thorn for sometime now. I did vote (absentee) for Col. Mike McCalister. Great guy and smart man. Lives in my town and just a personable man with Steet cred. Unfortuntely he did not get the GOP-e endorsement because he has strong conservative values and is not in the IN crowd.

Nelson did a good job on funding of NASA. I don’t think NASA people will forget.

It is time for the astronaut to splash down. This should be a definite pick-up for the GOP as Sen. Nelson has been an unquestioning rubber stamp for all of Obama’s leftist agenda.

Connie Mack jr. is the GOP candidate. Solid voting record and family pedigree are pluses. His divorce and marriage to Mary Bono, not so much. Putting that in it’s proper place in the hierarchy of needs, it is essential that Harry Reid’s reign of corruption over the US Senate come to an end.

It will be Mack in a shoo-in.

Nelson can no longer use his NASA big stick to show what he can do for the State of Florida.

He has been a "rubber stamp" all of his life! He was a "Pet Student" in High School, following administrator's orders even then, and always represented what he felt was in HIS BEST INTERESTS throughout his life!

A perfect "Tool" for democrats!

I used to live in Florida near where Nelson lived. My, how I hated that Ba$turd for his communist and anti-gun stances. There is nothing too horrible that could happen to him that he did not richly deserve!!!

I guess he is technically an astronaut, since he used his position as a congressman to go up into space, but he is really just a lawyer and politician. He used to appear on Fox and seemed mildly retarded, IMO. He didn’t save NASA from Obama, so I doubt if he has the space coast support that he used to have.

I don't know if stupid fits for some. There is a special category of evil for people such as Dick Durbin and Pete Stark.

Now Bella Pelosi is in her own category of stupid and evil.

Of course there are some that just plain breach birth stupid with umbilical cord complications:

I’m sorry but he isn’t even close in that horse race. Patty Murray and Barbara Boxer are waging that battle, but only because Carol Mosley Braun left the Senate.

Voted absentee for McCalister too. Well now he has two votes, assuming him and his wife, that guarantees him 4. Now if we can only get the rest of Florida GOP to vote for him.

Back to 3! He is divorced and raised his son as a single dad. Oh, back to 4! He has a son.
