Hasner, LeMieux Set to Join Senate Race in Florida

The St. Petersburg Times reports that former Florida state House Majority Leader Adam Hasner (R) has formed an exploratory committee for a now-inevitable run for U.S. Senate against Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL).

Hasner will join Florida Senate President Mike Haridopolos (R), who has already announced a bid and begun fundraising in earnest. Former Sen. George LeMieux (R-FL) is also expected to jump into the race soon, setting up a crowded Republican primary.

Check out our Q&A with Adam Smith last week on Florida politics for some background on the Senate race.
