McNeil ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. Senate, representing Florida. McNeil sought the nomination on the Independent ticket.[2] The signature filing deadline for candidates wishing to run was June 8, 2012. The primary elections were held on August 14, 2012. He was defeated on November 6, 2012 by incumbent Bill Nelson.[3]

The University of Virginia's Center for Politics published an article called Sabato's Crystal Ball on March 22, 2012, detailing the eight races in the Senate in 2012 that would decide the political fate of which party will end up with control in 2013.[4] The Senate seat in Florida was the toss up state ranked second in likelihood of ending up Democratic, behind New Mexico's Senate seat.[4] Incumbent Bill Nelson's mediocre approval rating was the reasoning behind the "toss-up" classification of the Senate seat, but Nelson was expected to gain Democratic support in time for the election in 2012.[4] Nelson was also expected to face significant opposition from Connie Mack, U.S. representative from the 14th District, in the general election on November 6, 2012.[4]
