September 28: I will vote no on Judge Kavanaugh. (Twitter)

September 25: Nelson, who's in a close reelection battle against Florida Gov. Rick Scott, said Tuesday he also wants to hear from Ford before deciding. Asked whether he also wants Deborah Ramirez, a woman alleging sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh during his college years, to testify, Nelson replied: “Of course.” (Politico)

July 16: “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,” Nelson wrote in a July 16 fundraising email, “you need to give right now to make sure Democrats take back the Senate by winning in Florida.” (Washington Examiner, and confirmed by Tampa Bay Times Washington bureau chief Alex Leary)

July 9: I look forward to meeting with the president's nominee in the coming weeks to discuss his views on several important issues such as protecting women's rights, guaranteeing access to health care for those with pre-existing conditions and protecting the right to vote, just to name a few. I will make my decision after that. (Tampa Bay Times)
