This time in Florida in a seat that they lost by 10 points just a year ago.

"Diaz far outspent Taddeo and had the benefit of a better-organized state Republican Party. But Democrats made Trump a talking point in advertising, speeches and fundraising campaigns, and grassroots efforts included sending handwritten cards to fellow voters to encourage turnout.
“I’m very uncomfortable with Mr. Trump and anyone who’s on his coattails, I’m heading the other way,” said Michelle Kolodny, a 65-year-old Democrat who said she voted in for Taddeo in part because she didn’t like Diaz’s ties to Trump. “All of his advertising and his campaigning had Trump plastered all over it.”

"Most political observers thought Diaz would win despite Trump’s negatives. Just last year, a sitting Democratic senator was trounced by 10 percentage points by Republican Frank Artiles."
