Robert Redford seeks to rally support for Bill Nelson



Fundraising email from Robert Redford.

I'm writing to ask for your support for Bill Nelson on Election Day, Nov. 6th, in Florida's U.S. Senate race.

There's a lot at stake, not the least of which is the continued protection of the Sunshine State's environment and economy.

Over the years, I've been a strong supporter of many noteworthy environmental causes including restoration of the Everglades and protection of Florida's beaches. And, as some of the state's newspapers have recently noted, perhaps no U.S. politician has defended Florida's beaches as staunchly as Bill Nelson.

Bill helped obtain billions of dollars in federal funding to restore the "River of Grass." And he led the effort to get the United Nations to put Everglades National Park back on a list of the World's most treasured or endangered sites. We need Bill Nelson in the Senate, because he's made a difference.

Thank you for helping to make a difference.

Robert Redford
