Press Release

The case against Bill Nelson is clear. He does not deserve another six years in Washington​​​​​​​

Tallahassee, FLAmericans for Prosperity Action sm  (AFP-Action) on Friday announced a seven-figure digital ad buy to supplement its grassroots and direct-mail efforts urging Floridians to vote against Bill Nelson in the race for U.S. Senate. The new spot highlights Nelson’s 30-year record of failing to improve health care outcomes for Florida families.

“Bill Nelson’s vote for the failed health care law punished Florida families with higher insurance premiums – 84 percent higher – and lined the pockets of pharmaceutical companies,” said Chris Hudson, AFP-Action senior advisor. “Bill Nelson has had 30 years to fix health care and didn’t do anything. He doesn’t deserve another six.”

Background:

  • Bill Nelson has received more than $125,000 in campaign contributions from pharmaceutical companies.
  • Nelson voted for Obamacare, which benefited pharmaceutical companies.
  • Individual market premiums in Florida increased 84 percent between 2013 and 2017.
