Pro-Life Group In Palm Beach County, Pushing Nelson To Vote For Kavanaugh

Senate confirmation hearings for President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh get underway on September 4th.

Meanwhile Floridians still don't know how Senator Bill Nelson will vote. 

On July 9th, the Democrat tweeted that he would make a decision after meeting with Kavanaugh, but one week later in an email to campaign donors, Nelson wrote that they should donate to keep "another right-wing extremist" off the U.S. high court. 

Here is an excerpt from Sen. Nelson's fundraising email:

“If you want to stop McConnell's plans to put another right-wing extremist on the Supreme Court, gut affordable health care and dismantle Medicare, you need to give right now to make sure Democrats take back the Senate by winning in Florida.”

Jill Stanek is National Campaign Chair with Pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List.

"What he is doing is at this point catering to Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi and the radical abortion lobby."

Stanek is touring the state to remind Senator Nelson that he's up for re-election and urging him to vote in favor of Kavanaugh.  Nelson will likely face Governor Rick Scott in November, though Scott does have a Primary challenger to get past first.

The organization was at Nelson's West Palm Beach office on Monday.  They're also visiting Fort Myers, Gainesville, Tallahassee, Panama City and Pensacola.

According to Susan B. Anthony List, 56% of Florida voters want Nelson to confirm President Trump's nominee and 54% believe that abortion policy should be decided by the people, not the Courts.
