UNF POLL: SENATOR BILL NELSON LEADS FLORIDA GOVERNOR RICHARD LYNN SCOTT BY SIX PERCENTAGE POINTS
Florida U.S. Senator Bill Nelson is leading Gov. RICHARD LYNN SCOTT
48-42 in latest University of North Florida poll.

If re-elected with a Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate, Senator Bill Nelson is in a position to help protect our coasts and oceans from global warming and global ocean level rise and from the depredations of offshore oil drilling, Big Oil and the perfidy of the DONALD TRUMP administration, of which Governor RICHARD LYNN SCOTT is a fawning supporter. I strongly support Senator Bill Nelson's re-election -- he's earned it.
