Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., becomes ENDA co-sponsor

Sen. Bill Nelson, the Florida Democrat, has signed on as a co-sponsor of ENDA, the Employment Nondiscrimination Act, reports HRC.

Last week, Equality Florida pressured Nelson to become a co-sponsor by Twitterbombing him.

Last April, Nelson reversed his position and became the 51st U.S. senator to support marriage equality.

From Huffington Post:

There are now just two Democratic senators -- Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) -- who are not co-sponsors of the legislation, which would bar workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. It is already illegal to discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, nationality, religion, age or disability.
