Adam Hasner On Running For Senate


Adam Hasner, running for the Republican nomination to oppose Democrat Senator Bill Nelson in Florida, has released a short video in which he discusses his reasons for launching an upstart grass-roots campaign:

It takes a lot of work to muscle into a crowded race like the Florida Senate contest.  So far, Hasner’s come-from-outside bid has been coming along quite well, although it’s still a wild melee with a lot of undecided voters looking on. 

National Journal recently noted Quinnipiac and Sachs / Mason-Dixon polls that show 52 to 53% of Republican voters in Florida remain undecided.  Furthermore, the second-place candidate in the Sachs / Mason-Dixon poll isn’t even running: Rep. Allen West.  That makes the truly undecided total even higher.

Among those poll respondents who declared a preference, the leading candidates are grouped fairly close together.  Rep. Vern Buchanan leads with 14%, but Hasner and George LeMieux are right behind him with 8% and 7% respectively, and former Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse executive Craig Miller is right behind them at 5%.  The Sachs poll currently shows all of them losing to Democrat Bill Nelson by roughly comparable margins, with Buchanan and Hasner doing best at 45-35 and 45-34.
