As Democrats try to save their last statewide elected official in Florida next year, Senator Bill Nelson searched the country to find a Democrat to prop up his lackluster campaign, settling on California Senator Kamala Harris. But unfortunately for Nelson, with her vocal support for a $32 trillion single-payer healthcare plan, lies about Republicans’ tax reform act, and role as a leading obstructionist to President Trump’s nominees, the west coast Democrat is just as out of sync with Floridians as Nelson.
“That Senator Nelson brought in a California, out-of-touch liberal to rally support for his campaign in a state that voted for a conservative future last November should make Democrats worry about their prospects in next year’s midterms. A progressive obstructionist like Kamala Harris isn’t going to distract Florida voters from the fact that as their senator, Nelson has sided with party leadership 90 percent of the time this year to obstruct the president and his agenda over doing what is best for his constituents.” – Ellie Hockenbury, RNC Spokesperson
