Nelson: I've done loads for Democrats



Sen. Bill Nelson, during a visit with the St Pete Times editorial board today, brushed off any suggestion that he hasn't done enough to help other Florida Democrats. He made sure Karen Thurman was elected chair, recruited the the nationally respected Luis Navarro as executive director, and has raised lots of money.

"I have done everything that I can for the Florida Democratic party, including putting a lot of my own money in (he wouldn't say how much) that could have been spent on TV.''

Meanwhile, he said he can't take anything for granted in the senate race and committed most of his money to reserving TV time. "I've got to be prepared for when the attacks come.''
