Bill Nelson is hitting the campaign trail on Saturday, marking one of the first formal events he's had since the U.S. Senate race with Rick Scott got rolling a month ago.
Nelson and state Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith "will join the families of victims lost during the Pulse massacre as they pay their respects Saturday at the interim memorial unveiled this week to honor the survivors and the 49 killed during the June 2016 tragedy," the campaign said.
"Also, on Saturday, Nelson's Neighbors, the Nelson campaign grassroots team, is joining the Seminole County Democrats and Seminole County Young Democrats for a canvass event. Nelson will meet with the volunteers and talk about the importance of the 2018 election."
Nelson's already done some low-level events — and has traveled the state in his Senate role — but fellow Democrats have called on him to get more visible.
Scott, meanwhile, has been all over the state — and rubbing it in Nelson's face.
Still, Nelson's lost one race in his entire career, which began in 1972: the 1990 Democratic primary for governor.
