LeMieux Returns to Law Firm; Nelson Raising Money

File Photo

His head start as a Senator for the last year and change has done little to familiarize and endear himself with Florida voters, Jensen wrote. In the general election part of this poll he did worse against Nelson than [Rep. Connie] Mack [IV] and posted a similar margin to [Senate President Mike] Haridopolos who hasnt had the incredible platform of a Senate seat already.

Nelson is already fundraising for his re-election bid, telling supporters in an e-mail Thursday, Republicans desperately want to defeat me in 2012 and to that end the GOP is declaring me one of their top targets.

He sounded a similar note to other Democrats by warning about shadowy special interest groups and said hed like donations before the New Years Eve deadline to show a clear demonstration of strength.

[S]how the Republicans we are ready to fight, Nelson wrote. In 2006, a key component of our victory was that we were prepared. When critical moments came early in the campaign we were ready and that made a huge difference. Thats why its important we get off to an early start.
