Two debates of a machine and a statement had to be made under the Florida law due to the strictness of the record, but they did not change the final account well, and # 39; finalizing the final wishes of the Democrat Bill Nelson for his six-year term of six years. Nelson allowed Scott in a Sunday call telephone call.
Scott, 65, joins Marco Rubio in January to give two state-of-the-provincial Republicans to his & her; first time of the Reconstruction.
Scott won – which was expected since the final final votes were counted last week and the remainder was 12,000 – which meant that a Republican would be successful in making it possible. Senators of Democrats in four states carried by President Donald Trump in 2016: Claire McCaskill in Missouri, Joe Donnelly in Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota and Nelson in Florida.
But the GOP failed to hit Sherrod Brown in Ohio, Joe Manchin in West Virginia, Bob Casey in Pennsylvania, Tammy Baldwin in Wisconsin, Debbie Stabenow in Michigan and Jon Tester in Montana – from the Democrats from six other states that Trump in 2016 once again took over against him.
In addition, Democratic Repanaid Jacky Rosen called the Dean Heller's Republican in Nevada, and Republican lost the place of Jeff Flake, disappeared to a representative of Kyrsten Cinema, which gave two pockets to Democrats.

While Scott's first run for a ruler in 2010, his two neighbors used in his & her; primary and democratically-nominated, Alex Sink, that history in negative adverse advertising. But Scott was willing to freely cost hundreds of millions of dollars free from personal luck and he had escaped narrow wounds against both.
In 2014, Scott won almost a rebellion against Charles Crist, who was a Republican governor before Scott but later became a Democrat.
In fact, he was just Scott; There was only a 50% breakdown in a consistent way in 2017, after being treated often on Hurricane Irma.

Many of the environmentalists have been blamed Scott for her & lost. He had saved savings to the bodies that are responsible for water quality protection in Lake Okeechobee and let turns on the action against pollutants.
Scott challenged late campaigns in the summer months; stop in Fort Myers and Venice – every Republican stronghold. To a large extent, he did not stop off coastal campaign attempts when spreading his red sea down the eastern side of the Florida, and then he stopped the entire campaign after Hur Hur Michael Michael hit the Panhandle early October.
However, Scott benefited from hosting the Assembly as a seat regulator. State governors are well-elected voters and are able to take credit for day-to-day performance, and elders are not near that level of publicity. The last general president for losing an election in Florida, indeed, president also sat down: Gordon Democratic. Bob Graham Sen Republican Paula Hawkins spoke in 1986.
At the end, there was a bonus of & # 39; This bullying pulpit combined with the thousands of millions of Scott dollars himself put the race enough to win.
