Is U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson the real savior of the Florida Democratic Party? Some folks think that Nelson should run for governor.
So with that in mind, a few questions:
Would newly minted Democrat Charlie Crist run against Nelson in a Democratic primary?
Could Crist defeat Nelson?
Would Nelson be able to raise the money?
Would Crist stay out of the raise if Nelson got in?
Is there anybody else in the Democratic Party who could give Crist a serious run for the nomination?
These questions are being asked in Democratic circles - the answers will say a lot about the future of the Florida Democratic Party.
Last week, The Palm Beach Post reported this:
“Right now Sen. Nelson cannot envision a circumstance under which he would run for governor. But he remains very concerned about the state’s future,” Nelson communications director Dan McLaughlin said.
If you are one of those who believe Nelson should run - hang your hopes on the words, "Right now."
