"Rick Scott has been very visible as a governor, very active as a governor".
Scott's entry poses a formidable challenge to Nelson, who has not had a serious challenge since winning his first term in 2000. Republicans need a win here they absolutely need a win. Scott's "Let's Get to Work" mantra, used in two gubernatorial campaigns, will transfer to this race.

"That's not what I call jobs", said Lyte-Johnson, the president of the Democratic Women's Club of West Orange County. "I know he's asked me to get into the race".
