Post-Sandy, Nelson sends out a pitch for Red Cross

by John Kennedy | October 30th, 2012

With the Northeast digging out from Hurricane Sandy, Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson paused Tuesday to send out a fund-raising email for the American Red Cross.

“One days like today, it’s crucial we put politics aside and come together as Americans,” Nelson said in a message to supporters with a link to the Red Cross site.

Nelson as been portraying himself as a centrist, tired of the Washington gridlock, in his re-election fight with Republican Connie Mack.

He’s already campaigned in usually reliable Republican areas like the Florida Panhandle. And on Halloween, Nelson plans to continue working GOP turf — with a lunchtime appearance planned at Miami’s Versailles Restaurant, a must-stop on the Florida political itinerary for Republicans, but rarely a Democratic detour.

Mack is planning three stops Wednesday with Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney, who will be campaigning in Florida with U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and former Gov. Jeb Bush.

    Nice try Bill. But the tax payer isn’t going to forget all the years of big spending you have under your belt. Oh and thanks for sending our money to rich people in Egypt and Pakistan… we could use that right about now you know!

    Nelson is trying to make us feel all warm and fuzzy… I have nothing against the Red Cross. But lets not forget how much we should be fed up with Bill Nelson and his outrageous spending record. He has voted for every debt increase and has ignored balancing the budget. How does Senator Nelson plan to tackle the coming entitlement crisis? Probably by raising the debt ceiling again.
