National Journal Ranks Florida Senate Race

The National Journal's rankings of the U.S. Senate races places Florida at the 17th most competitive Senate race out of 33 - in other words, not even in the top half.

However, the National Journal also posits that virtually any Republican not Katherin Harris could win 45% of the vote. While 45% is still a long way from 50% plus one vote, considering that polls have been showing Katherine Harris with less than 30% of the vote against incumbent Bill Nelson (see photo), 45% has to look good to the operatives at the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

My personal opinion is that there isn't a single Republican - possibly not even Jeb Bush - who could defeat Bill Nelson right now.

The fact is, it is very late in the game. While Jeb could raise a lot money fast, so could Nelson if Jeb were to jump in the game, and Jeb would be starting from zero and Nelson would be starting from $12 million.
