Former Florida House Majority Leader Adam Hasner won Fridays’ Conservative Political Action Conference straw poll as the favored candidate to take on Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson in 2012. Hasner received 34 percent of the vote compared to former U.S. Sen. George LeMieux's 24 percent.
 
“This is an exciting time for Florida Republicans and I am extremely proud to be part of it. Today’s results demonstrate that conservative Floridians are looking for a leader who doesn’t just claim to share their values but one that has the record to actually back it up,” Hasner said. “The challenges we face as a nation require proactive and forthright leadership and the people of Florida deserve another U.S. senator they can trust to faithfully fight against the policies of President Obama and Senator Nelson.  
 
“"I am grateful to the Republican and conservative activists who traveled from across the state to take part in this most American of events,” he said.  “It is through their hard work and dedication that I was able to win today and it’s through their continued sacrifice and passion that I will defeat Senator Nelson and help reclaim the majority in the U.S. Senate.”
