Nelson Shares Thoughts on Race Against Rick Scott


Florida Senator Bill Nelson has been quiet since term-limited Governor Rick Scott announced that he would be running for the senate. While the Governor has launched several advertisements in English and Spanish, Senator Nelson has not released any advertisement and hasn’t commented often on his race for reelection.

However, now the Senator is sharing his thoughts on what he thinks of the Florida Governor and what many people are commenting will be the toughest race he’s ever been a part of.

In a statement, Senator Nelson explained that “We’re still six months out from this election. By the time that you get around to November. it’s going to be very clear the choice the people of Florida have.”

He added that “I’ve always said that the best politics is just to do a good job. My job takes me to Washington every week to vote and pass laws and to kill legislation and to try to bring us together in a bipartisan way.”

In addition, Senator Nelson voted in favor of Gina Haspel to lead the CIA, and he justified his vote as such. He detailed that he has “been on the Intelligence Committee. I have been through all the questions on the waterboarding. I know that she did not affirmatively participate in that waterboarding. But what was more important to me was that she [will] not do it again.”

He noted that “It’s a form of torture. It’s against the law. And she has clearly said that she would not participate in that. She is obviously qualified, and I’ll tell you, we need the best and brightest that we can get as the head of the CIA.”
