GOP sees Florida's Democratic Senator Nelson as 2006 target

"And as the lone Florida Democrat holding statewide office, Nelson is wearing a huge target on his back.

Republicans, emboldened by Election Day victories across the South, are already seeing Nelson's seat as one they could put in GOP control in 2006."

I think this is going to be an essential element of the Republican ground game, for two reasons. First, they are obviously not content with their gains, and will not stop until the oppoistion has been ground into so much dust. But perhaps more importantly, they know that the Democrat's best hope for the future is another good old boy from Jesusland. If they pick off the few remaining Democratic Senators and Governors from the South, the next potential Bubba never makes it to the national stage.
