Look who showed up for work today….
It looks like Senator Bill decided to actually show up for the Senate Armed Services Committee hearings this week… but a sudden interest in improving his poor attendance record won’t undo years of only showing up for work half the time.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: See the recent ad revealing Nelson’s habit of skipping national security hearings HERE and a statement from Governor Rick Scott below:
Governor Rick Scott said, “Senator Nelson’s poor attendance record is exactly what we have come to expect from a Washington career politician – he feels entitled to Floridians’ votes, but he won’t even go to work. We have seen this time and time again from Bill Nelson, both on the campaign trail, when he refuses to show up to events, and in Washington, when he walks out of, or doesn’t bother to attend, committee hearings on issues directly related to Florida. It’s no wonder nothing gets done in Washington – and it’s long past time for that to change. If Bill Nelson won’t show up when it comes to national security and protecting American families, he doesn’t deserve to represent our state.”
