Bill Nelson Debate Dodger Calendar Surpasses Three Weeks

It has now been more than three weeks of silence from Bill Nelson since the Scott for Florida campaign announced that Governor Rick Scott will participate in a series of debates this fall. After nearly half a century as a career politician, why is Bill Nelson so hesitant to defend his record on the debate stage?

The governor will participate in the following debates, none of which Bill Nelson has committed to. The Scott for Florida campaign is continuing to review other invitations and will make additional announcements this summer.

“Our Bill Nelson Debate Dodger Calendar has now surpassed three weeks without any explanation from Bill Nelson on why he is so hesitant to debate Governor Scott this fall. Unfortunately, this is exactly what we have come to expect of career politicians like Bill Nelson who are all talk and no action. Floridians deserve a leader who will actually put in the work – that’s what Governor Scott has done for Florida, and that’s why we will continue to count the days until Bill Nelson suddenly decides to show up for our state.” – Lauren Schenone, Scott for Florida Press Secretary
