Roll Call: Sen. Bill Nelson wins ‘Luckiest Politician of 2012′ award

by George Bennett | December 11th, 2012


Rothenberg Political Report editor Stuart Rothenberg, writing a best-and-worst-of-2012 piece in Roll Call, says Florida Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson is the luckiest politician in America.

Nelson got 55.2 percent in November to defeat Republican Rep. Connie Mack, who according to Rothenberg “raised little money and apparently figured that oozing cockiness was the best way to woo reporters and voters.”

It’s the third time in a row Nelson has been blessed with a “mediocre” Republican foe, Rothenberg says, noting that Nelson beat former Rep. Bill McCollum in 2000 and the Katherine Harris train wreck in 2006.

    If the GOP keeps running candidates that are “train wrecks”, this country may just get back to normal!
