Bill Nelson joins Joe Biden's Everglades visit

Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., will be joining Vice President Joe Biden on Monday in the Everglades, where Biden will tour part of Everglades National Park and tout the money the Obama administration is putting into restoration.

Can you tell it's an election year? First Lady Michelle Obama will be on the other side of the state later in the week. And next month, the vice president's wife, Jill Biden, comes to South Florida locale, Broward College, to deliver the commencement address.

In a sign of the president's shifting fortunes in Florida, Nelson, who's up for reelection, has become much bolder about appearing with administration figures. (See photos here.)
