Boosting the early vote

Coasting comfortably ahead of his Republican challenger, Sen. Bill Nelson plans to cast an early vote Thursday in Orlando.

According to the Democrat's campaign, Nelson will vote at 10:30 a.m. at the Orange County Supervisor of Elections office before heading to Tampa for a political event.

Floridians began casting early votes on Monday and Nelson noted, "with early voting there's no excuse for anyone not to participate."

A poll out Wednesday showed Nelson with a 64 to 29 percent lead over Rep. Katherine Harris.
