U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson's recent comments that Russians are meddling in Florida's election system have triggered a ton of commotion throughout the Sunshine State.
The comments have triggered a line of attack from Republican Gov. Rick Scott and his campaign supporters who contend that the 75-year-old Nelson is "terribly confused" or even "incoherent."
Nelson's campaign has labeled it as "dirty politics," but Scott's campaign has defended the criticism.
This past week, federal authorities told Florida election officials they saw no signs of any "new or ongoing compromises" of state or local election systems.
Scott said this proved Nelson was "reckless" and "irresponsible."
