Scott for Florida Releases Latest Video on Nelson Putting Partisan Politics First: “Rubber Stamp”

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, the Scott for Florida campaign released its latest video on Bill Nelson putting partisan politics over Florida, “Rubber Stamp.” The video follows the recent announcement of Justice Anthony Kennedy retiring from the United States Supreme Court, and highlights Bill Nelson’s history of voting the party line on judicial nominations.

“Bill Nelson’s voting history shows that he puts partisan politics before Floridians, even when it comes to something as important as judicial nominations. Bill Nelson didn’t vote against a single one of Obama’s judicial nominees, but he obeyed party leaders in voting against Supreme Court Justice Gorsuch and decided to vote against a Florida judicial appointee he personally recommended once Chuck Schumer wanted him to. That’s because Bill Nelson isn’t in Washington to be a leader for Florida – he’s in Washington to be a rubber stamp for democrats.” – Lauren Schenone, Press Secretary for Scott for Florida
