Gov. Scott: Obama and Nelson Dropped the Ball for Florida Families

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Governor Rick Scott released the below statement on President Obama’s visit to Florida and Senator Nelson’s failure to stand up to Obama when Florida families needed it.

Governor Scott said, “Time and time again, we asked President Obama and his friends in Congress, like Senator Nelson, to follow through on their federal commitments to Florida… and time and time again, they failed. Senator Nelson even refused to stand up to Obama when his NASA budget cuts cost the jobs of thousands of Florida families and the livelihoods of businesses along the Space Coast. This visit is just another reminder to Floridians that Senator Nelson will always choose partisan politics over our families – and after 42 years in politics, it’s time to send him home.”
