Former President Barack Obama today endorsed U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson in his bid for re-election in Florida. "I served with Sen. Nelson in the Senate. He is a person of honesty and integrity who treats public office as a public trust," Obama said in a prepared statement.
The Miami Herald today endorsed Bill Nelson for U.S. Senate today. The endorsement comes on the heels of another major newspaper giving the nod to Nelson. And the release of three new major polls last week all showing the close race leaning toward Nelson.
