Bill Nelson Fundraises Off A Hurricane As He Trails Rick Scott

Published

on

Florida Democratic Senator Bill Nelson has been caught fundraising off Hurricane Irma.

Nelson made a significant political mistake in a state that has been ravaged by natural disaster, indicating to some people that he is not sufficiently concerned with the plight of his constituents.

“That’s right — with one of the strongest storms of the century bearing down on Florida, these airlines were hiking up prices for those trying to escape,” Nelson said in an email to Floridians criticizing the airlines for price gouging during the storm (which was a very big problem for residents).

However, there was just one problem with Nelson’s email: he included a large campaign-fundraising button in the message below his criticism of the airlines.

Republicans in Washington noticed this fact Thursday.

The Florida Chamber of Commerce released a poll this week showing Republican governor Rick Scott beating Bill Nelson in the Senate race 47 percent to 45.
