Ketha Otis, a Vocational Rehabilitation Technician and president of AFSCME Local 2862, said that she and her fellow state employees are not going to let the two-term governor "falsely portray his slash and burn record".
"I don't care who is an opponent", Nelson said in Washington. Scott came to prominence in the tea party wave of 2010, running against the party in the White House and Congress. "A lot of [undecided voters] will be showing up specifically to send a message to Trump, the same way they specifically sent a message to Obama".
"We must change Washington".
The Scott-Nelson congressional race is expected to be one of the most expensive in the country, considering Scott reportedly poured $90 million into his two gubernatorial races.
"Washington is a disaster; there's [sic] a lot of old, exhausted thinking up there, [and] it's not heading in the right direction", Scott said.
"I'd be surprised if it wasn't", said Terry Sullivan, a Republican political strategist who managed Marco Rubio's presidential campaign in 2016 and subsequently worked on his Senate race that year.More news: Trump warns of 'forceful' action in Syria

"I never planned to fit in, and I won't fit in in Washington, either", Scott says in the video. Scott said he would get Congress to work for the American people - not establishment politicians. The governor would not tell the publication whether the President would campaign for him. Ultimately, Scott signed Florida's new law raising the age limit to purchase rifles to 21 and creating a new process enabling law-enforcement to seize guns from someone who is considered a danger. Slightly more Florida voters disapprove of Trump's job so far as president (44 percent) than approve (41 percent), according to a Florida Atlantic University Poll in February. Everyone assumed it'd be about the Senate race.
But Scott ended 2017 with a 58 percent approval rating in Morning Consult's polling, putting him in a tie for the 11th most popular governor in America.
However, heading into the Senate race, Scott's popularity numbers are his best since he emerged on the Florida political scene.
Democrats have raised questions regarding whether Scott has used the blind trusts to hide potential profits earned since taking office. Nelson is the top Democrat on the Senate Commerce Committee.
Four Scott opponents stood outside Monday's event, with motorists occasionally tooting horns or giving thumbs up as they drove past. Pro-Trump and anti-Trump messages have been losers for Republicans this year, especially in Florida. "We cut their taxes, reduced regulation and we've added right about 1.5 million jobs".
