GOP and Dems duking it outThe most closely watched, and expensive, U.S. Senate race of the year could be unfolding in Florida.

In one corner is the Democratic incumbent, Sen. Bill Nelson, seeking re-election after being elected in 2000. 

In the other corner is the Republican challenger, Gov. Rick Scott.

RealClearPolitics considers the race a "toss-up" even though polls show Nelson has a single-digit lead over Scott. He is currently averaging 3.8 points ahead of the GOP challenger.

Political scientist Dr. Charles Dunn of Clemson University says Scott has an "excellent portfolio" and could pull off an upset.

"I've watched Nelson recently," Dunn observes. "While he's an articulate fellow he does not exude a lot of enthusiasm."

Richard Viguerie, chairman of Conservative HQ, says he's "thrilled" that Scott is running.

"He's not a movement conservative but he is a conservative," Viguerie, whose own conservative activism dates to the 1970s, says of Scott. "He's an outsider. He's not part of the good ole boy network."

It's also going to be an expensive race, he adds, and Republicans will have to work for a win.
