Sen. Nelson: Rick Scott 'Will Say and Do Anything To Get Elected' To Senate
Florida Sen. Bill Nelson (D) slammed Rick Scott on Monday after the Republican governor announced his bid for Nelson's Senate seat, saying Scott "will say and do anything to try to get elected."
Nelson touted his accomplishments on "The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino," and thereafter scoffed at Scott's policy announcement that he will run on the issue of establishing term limits.
"It takes time to work up through the seniority system, so I would think that that's particularly important to Florida," he added.
I’ve always run every race like there’s no tomorrow —regardless of my opponent. While it’s clear that Rick Scott will say or do anything to get elected, I’ve always believed that if you wake up every day and if you try to do the right thing, the politics will take care of itself.

In Scott's announcement Monday, he touted himself as a governor who has never "played by the political rules," a personal aspect he said will help fix Washington.
"It’s time to shake that place up. We don’t need another politician in Washington -- it’s full of politicians, and that’s why it’s broken," he said.
