Vote for leaders who know right from wrong, Nelson urges students

ORLANDO, Fla. – In the final days of the hard-fought U.S. Senate race, U.S. Sen Bill Nelson urged a crowd of young voters here to elect leaders who can be trusted, who know right from wrong.

At an early vote rally at the University of Central Florida, Nelson said, “I feel that a public office is a public trust. And therein is what’s at stake in this race: trust and integrity.”

Hosting the rally was Democratic gubernatorial nominee Mayor Andrew Gillum. Also attending the early vote event were U.S. Rep. Stephanie Murphy and former U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro.

In the closing weeks of the election, Nelson has been criss-crossing the state. Among other dignitaries who have supported his re-elecion were President Barack Obama, Vice President Biden and Nelson’s friend and former NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden.

Later today, Florida environmental advocate and world-famous singer Jimmy Buffet will hold a concert for Nelson and Gillum in West Palm Beach.
