Florida Senate: Bill Nelson Starts with Three Million

Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL) “is sitting on a war chest of just over $3 million heading into the 2012 election cycle, raising $260K in the final quarter of 2010,” The Hill reports.

Nelson will need every penny and more next year to fend off what’s expected to be a strong Republican challenge, but he starts in solid financial shape.

Florida State Senate President Mike Haridopolos has already jumped into the race, with Rep. Connie Mack (R-Fla.) and former Sen. George LeMieux (R-Fla.) also weighing bids.
