BILL NELSON ATTEMPTS TO BACK OUT OF CNN DEBATE

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Governor Rick Scott released the following statement regarding the CNN debate. Following last night’s embarrassing debate performance, Senator Bill Nelson and his handlers do not want Florida voters to have the opportunity to see the contrast between the Senator and Governor Scott.

Governor Rick Scott said, “I have agreed to a debate with CNN on October 16th at 10:00 p.m. in Tampa, moderated by Wolf Blitzer – exactly on the terms proposed by CNN. Senator Nelson also agreed to this debate. Unfortunately, I have learned today that Senator Nelson IS TRYING TO BACK OUT of this debate, which is a real shame. I have also agreed to two other debates which Senator Nelson has refused to attend. Florida voters deserve to hear from the both of us, and regardless of what Senator Nelson decides to do, I will be in Tampa on that date and at that time to debate. I really do hope Senator Nelson keeps his word and decides to SHOW UP.”
