Bill Nelson Faces Off Against Connie Mack In Florida Senate Race

In Florida, incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson is matched up against Connie Mack IV (nee Cornelius Harvey McGillicuddy IV), the son of former Florida Sen. Connie Mack III (nee Cornelius Harvey McGillicuddy III). Mack IV currently serves in Florida’s 14th District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

In a state where record amounts of campaign cash has yielded a robust political battle on the airwaves, the Nelson-Mack tilt has been a “low key” outlier. The Albany Times Union reports that neither man is ending the campaign on a breakneck schedule. Nelson, the paper reports, is “quietly confident,” while Mack maintains that the polls that favor his rival are all wrong. But as one observer puts it: "Bill Nelson and Connie — it's like they've lulled each other to sleep,"

As of this writing, the HuffPost Pollster model has Nelson with a comfortable 51.5-43.3 percent lead.
