Statement on Sen. Nelson's Opposition To Judge Gorsuch

Statement from Progress Florida Executive Director Mark Ferrulo on behalf of the Florida Why Courts Matter Coalition:

“Having a common-sense, often bi-partisan senator like Bill Nelson come out against President Trump's Supreme Court nominee sends a clear signal about just how out of step Neil Gorsuch is with mainstream American values. 

“We agree wholeheartedly with Sen. Nelson that Judge Gorsuch’s track record on voting rights, the corrosive influence of money in elections and siding with corporations over hardworking Americans should disqualify him from sitting on the highest court in the land.

“Every Floridian who works for a living and values their fundamental rights — including the right to vote — owes a debt of gratitude to Bill Nelson for taking this stand.”
