U.S. Senator Bill Nelson made a quick stop in Tallahassee this afternoon 10/20. He stopped by FAMU's campus and talked to students about a variety of issues. Attendees sought the Senator's opinion on the cost of education and budgeting concerns for NASA. They also talked about energy conservation.
On the six month anniversary of the Deep Water Horizon rig explosion, Nelson says America needs to wean itself off the dependence of oil. "We need to be serious about using energy that comes from some place other than oil because we get most of our oil from the Persian Gulf, Nigeria and Venezuela and those are very unstable parts of the world," says, Nelson.
Nelson also commented on the state Senate race. He says he thinks people will gravitate to their home parties and the race will end up being between Kendrick Meek and Marco Rubio.
