Florida Senate: President to Headline Fundraiser for Bill Nelson, DSCC

President Barack Obama “will travel to Florida next month to headline a fundraiser for Sen. Bill Nelson, who could face a rough road to re-election next year,” CNN reports.

The president will attend the March 4 event along with Nelson and Sen. Patty Murray of Washington, chairwoman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, according to a source with knowledge of the event. The dinner and reception is being held at the Miami Beach, Florida home of Judith and Michael Adler, large contributors to Democratic candidates and causes.

The source tells CNN that the money raised at the event will be split between Sen. Nelson’s re-election bid and the DSCC.
