Biden follows Obama in raising money for Bill Nelson

by George Bennett | March 17th, 2011

Vice President Joe Biden will be in Tampa next week to raise money for Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson’s 2012 reelection bid, the Tampa Bay-area Creative Loafing website is reporting.

Biden’s visit follows President Obama’s recent Miami Beach fund-raiser for Nelson, who’s a high-value Republican target in 2012.

Nelson began 2011 with more than $3 million in cash on hand for his reelection bid.

    Man, Nelson’s so concerned about his job he’s bringing in Biden to raise money. Say, isn’t Congress in session right now?

    Funny you should bring that up, papabear. Just another sign the Dems at the top are scared to death of 2012 and the Repubs who can eat Nelson’s lunch. That $1 million Haridopolis raised in one day probably freaked them all out.

    This is soo funny!

    If it weren’t soo pathetic . . . .

    Nelson it seems initially tried to be somewhat of an honorable leader but he couldn’t quite make it.

    Since he capitulated and sold-out to line his pockets with the taxpayer’s coin some years ago he is now no different from that well known college exam cheat and smiling weak-link buffoon, Biden.

    What a couple of clowns happily sucking at the public teat!
