Nelson says he hopes to work with Rubio, says South Florida will decide gov raceby Jeff Ostrowski | November 2nd, 2010
TAMPA — U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson said he hopes he and Marco Rubio can continue what he called a tradition of cooperation between Florida’s two senators, even if they’re from different parties.
“I will be calling Sen.-elect Rubio and congratulating him just as soon as I can get to a telephone,” Nelson told reporters shortly before 9:30.
Nelson is attending Alex Sink’s election night party here. While Sink is trailing so far, Nelson predicted that Sink will make up the margin in Miami-Dade and Broward counties.
“Dade and Broward will decide the governor’s election,” Nelson said.
