Bill Nelson to kick off 'Florida First' tour on Friday



U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson will kick off a statewide "Florida First" tour on Friday with an Orlando-area event featuring Jimmy Buffett.

Nelson will hit at least 19 cities leading up to Election Day, with some breaks in between, including the debate with Connie Mack. One stop will be in Chipley, where Nelson has family roots.

It's not a bus tour per se. Nelson will be traveling by car, a campaign official said.
