Scott for Florida Releases New Fact Check on Bill Nelson: “Think Again”

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, the Scott for Florida campaign released its latest fact check on Bill Nelson, “Think Again.” The fact check highlights the hypocrisy of Bill Nelson continuing to attempt to portray himself as independent despite a record of putting partisan politics above Floridians.

“Bill Nelson’s poor attempt to play the ‘independent’ continues to be exposed by his own hypocrisy. Just last week, Nelson flip flopped on a judicial appointment after he realized his opinion was out of line with his Democratic party bosses. Nelson has proven that he will do anything – including voting against what’s in the best interest of Floridians – to gain support for his fragile reelection campaign. Floridians are fed up with career politicians like Nelson putting politics over people, and they deserve a leader with a backbone who will actually put our state first.” – Lauren Schenone, Scott for Florida Press Secretary

Watch above and see the full script here:

Bill Nelson wants you to think he’s independent…

But the numbers tell a different story.

Nelson votes with Democrats over 90 percent of the time.

(CQ Vote Study, Accessed 5/15/18)

He voted with Obama to cut billions from Medicare.

(S. Amdt. 2942 To S. Amdt. 2786 To H.R. 3590, Roll Call Vote #368: Amendment Rejected 43-56, 12/7/09, Nelson Voted Nay)

(Sarah Kliff, “Romney’s Right: Obamacare Cuts Medicare By $716 Billion. Here’s How.” The Washington Post, 8/14/13)

And he voted with Democrats against the tax reform that has brought jobs to Florida.

(Tax Cuts And Jobs Act, Final Passage, Passed 14-12, 11/16/17, Nelson Voted Nay; H.R. 1, Roll Call Vote #323: Passed 51-48, 12/20/17, Nelson Voted Nay)

He even voted against a judge he recommended to please Chuck Schumer…

Bill Nelson isn’t fighting for Florida… Bill Nelson is only fighting for the Democrats.
