Sen. Bill Nel­son (D) “spoke highly Tues­day” Sen. Jeff Ses­sions (R-AL) “as a pos­sible U.S. at­tor­ney gen­er­al in Don­ald Trump‘s ad­min­is­tra­tion. Dur­ing a stop in Kissim­mee Tues­day, Nel­son de­scribed Ses­sions as a col­league, friend, and fel­low seni­or mem­ber of the Sen­ate Armed Ser­vices Com­mit­tee, and as someone he can work with. Nel­son, however, stopped short of de­clar­ing his sup­port for Ses­sions, Pres­id­ent-elect Trump’s pick to run the U.S. De­part­ment of Justice.”

Nel­son: “I think he’s a reas­on­able per­son.” (Flor­ida Polit­ics)
