Dems launch anti-Scott site ahead of his expected Nelson Senate challenge

The National Democratic Senatorial Committee today is launching an anti-RIck Scott website in advance of Scott’s expected challenge of Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson.

Democrats have been preparing for more than a year to defend Florida Sen. Bill Nelson‘s seat against an expected challenge from term-limited Republican Florida Gov. Rick Scott.

Scott promises a “big announcement” Monday.

Scott — who has been publicly urged to enter the Senate race by President Donald Trump — appears ready to make it official next week.

Scott’s social media accounts have been promising  a “big announcement” on Facebook live on Monday morning.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee today is launching an anti-Scott website that collects years of opposition research on Scott.

“Rick Scott is a self-serving politician who will say and do anything to help himself at Floridians’ expense,” says a message on the landing page of the new Democratic site.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee has amassed its own storehouse of anti-Nelson material. Most recently,  the NRSC released a digital ad reminding voters of Hillary Clinton‘s 2016 “basket of deplorables” remarks about Trump supporters and Nelson’s support for Clinton.
