Nelson stops by Democratic convention, heads to Panhandle

by George Bennett | September 4th, 2012

Sen. Bill Nelson gives a radio interview shortly before the beginning of the Democratic National Convention.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Sen. Bill Nelson — the only Democrat now in statewide office in Florida — made a brief appearance on the floor of the Democratic National Convention this afternoon, granting a few interviews and greeting delegates before heading out of town.

“My campaign’s down there,” Nelson said when asked why he’s not sticking around for the entire three-day convention.

“I’m running my own race and that’s why I’m going back to Florida tonight. I’ll be in the Panhandle of Florida tomorrow morning early,” Nelson told a TV interviewer.

Nelson faces a tough reelection challenge from Republican Rep. Connie Mack, with outside groups pouring millions into the state to try to unseat Nelson.

  3. NO to NELSON Says:

    When someone has been in political office for over 40 years and no one can say one thing he did for the State of Florida, then that person, Bill Nelson, does not deserve ANOTHER 6 years in political office.


    A professional politician with nothing to show FLoridians.

    NO to Nelson! 46 years is TOO MUCH!
